New Video: 2006 Japan Hidden Ball Trick


Earlier this week we put up a video from 2010, featuring a Japan Hidden Ball Trick. The announcers called it the first successful hidden ball trick, but we knew that couldn’t be true. Thanks to Kentaro Shimizu, we now KNOW that the statement was false, because we’ve got video evidence from 2006!

This time the Japanese National Team pulled off the trick against the Iroquois Nationals. In 2010, it was the Aussies. I wonder who will get hidden balled in 2014? At this point, it’s bound to happen!

The best thing about both of these Hidden Ball Tricks is that the same player scored BOTH of them: Masayuki Kadota, you are a hidden ball trick legend!
