Nomo's personality

Welcoming Nomo Nomo's impact on later Japanese players Nomo's personality Nomo attendance boost Dodgers relationship with Japan Walter O’Malley’s philosophy

Transcripts available in the following languages:

Well, on the mound he’s a warrior. In front of the media interviews he’s kind of stoic. In private, very funny, he jokes around a lot and he’s a good guy. I just think he has professional side to him and he considers interviews with media and or being on the mound practice. He takes those things very seriously as job/work, but outside of that he’s pretty funny. I’ve gone out with him on several occasions- dinners and so on, it’s a lot of fun, we have lots of laughs and so on that most people don’t get to see that part of Nomo I think.
