Rob Kajiwara is a two-way ambidextrous baseball player, playing shortstop right-handed, and pitching left-handed. He played baseball at Green River College in Auburn, Washington, and was scouted by some pro teams, but he was uninterested in pursuing baseball in the continental United States due to homesickness and culture shock, and ended up dropping out of college to return to his native Hawaii. He cares much more about family and principles than about money or fame. He played in the Oahu Baseball League for several years. He currently lives most of the year in Okinawa, pursuing his dream of playing professional baseball for a Ryukyu / Okinawan team.
