Who is Takuro Ishii?

Takuro Ishii is a Japanese professional baseball player. He currently plays for Hiroshima Toyo Carp. He bats left-handed and throws right-handed.

Ishii was regarded as one of the best Japanese shortstops of the late 1990s and early 2000s. Though his stats have lately declined due to age, he still contributes with his precise fielding and solid batting abilities, as well as his leadership as a veteran player.

Ishii entered the professional leagues with the Yokohama Taiyo Whales, and has been with the team for his entire career.

His wife is FujiTV announcer Shiori Arase. He has two children, born in 2002 and 2005. His former wife is Azusa Senou, who was a member of Coco. They were married from 1996 to 2000, but she left him because he frequently cheated on her with other women. Correspondingly, one famous incident occurred in 2000 when well-known NHK announcer Yumiko Udo was photographed coming out of Takuro's apartment in the early hours or the morning disguised wearing a wig.
