The BC League is mainly composed of young players aiming to join a professional team. Even though he is at the age to be a leader beyond bullying, Sawasaki is still full of passion.

4th pick by the Softbank Hawks, debuted as a pro in 2001. He was a leading shortstop in Japanese professional baseball in his prime. He ranked first in hits (171) and stolen bases (42) in the 2004 Pacific League as a Hota Junjok. In 2006 and 2009, he participated as the WBC Japan representative and contributed to consecutive championships. In 2006, he started as a shortstop for Joo-Jun and in 2009 as a third baseman.

He had an extraordinary spirit of challenge.
