Takeya Nakamura (中村 剛也, Nakamura Takeya) (born August 15, 1983, in Daitō, Osaka) is Japanese baseball player. He is an infielder for the Seibu Lions in Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball. Nicknamed "Okawari-kun (おかわり君)" (roughly translating to "second helpings") for his large frame, Nakamura is one of Japan's premier power hitters. Playing his first full season in 2008, Nakamura belted a league-high 46 home runs and drove in 101 runs despite a .244 average. He raised his average to .285 in the 2009 season and set a career high with 48 home runs to lead the league for the second straight year. He also increased his RBI output to 122 in just 128 games. After playing only 85 games in 2010 (still managing 25 home runs), Nakamura played all 144 games in 2011 and tied his own career high with 48 home runs. After a slight decline in production (due in part to missed time) from 2012 to 2014, Nakamura had another extremely productive season in 2015 with 37 home runs and a career-high 124 RBI, both of which led the Pacific League. He set a career high in hits (145) and his .278 average and 35 doubles were his best since 2009. By the end of 2015 at age 31, Nakamura has recorded more than 300 career home runs and 500 extra-base hits, and is climbing up the ranks of NPB's all-time home runs list.
