|“||He became the master of the bullpen before we knew it.||”|
— Oota about Ochiai Hiromitsu
Oota is a plump guy and it appears that he is a little bit smaller than Kataoka. He has short brown hair, sideburns and thick eyebrows. He often wears brown trousers and a green tie.
During games when Seidou is in a pinch, Oota has a habit of constantly calling for Kawakami to replace the current pitcher.
Relationships with other charactersEdit
Oota values Kataoka’s opinion and deeply respects him.
At the beginning of the series Oota didn't see nor believed in Sawamura's hidden talents. It seemed that he thought that Sawamura is bound for failure, but he eventually acknowledges and starts to trust him (even if only a little).
It's revealed during the series that Kawakami is his favorite pitcher on the team.
