Arizona Republic (Newspaper) - February 26, 1966, Phoenix, Arizona . � ' > ; j 58 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Sat., Feb. 26, 1966 SF Giants Sign Japan Moundsman SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-The San Francisco Giants have given a try-out contract to a 20-year-old Japanese hurler who can pitch with either hand, scout Cappy Harada said yesterday. Harada said Shozo Yoshinari will try out with Fresno, Calif., o� the Class A California League at the San Francisco Spring training camp at Casa Grande The Giants said they hadn't received Yoshinari's signed contract yet but had heard that Harada had signed the ambidextrous pitcher.

"He pitched all three of those ; games right handed. I saw him ; again that same year, pitching � left handed in an exhibition .; game for the Tokyo Giants."
