Monthly Hanshin Tigers – October 2015

2015OctoberCoverThe latest edition of the Tigers monthly magazine came out a little later than usual – apparently they wanted to cover as much of the “pennant race” as possible before printing and shipping. Well, the pennant race ended prematurely for this club, but the magazine continues on! Along with the usual content, subscribers (like myself) got 5 trading cards (Takashi Toritani, Ryutaro Umeno, Shinobu Fukuhara, Hayata Itoh, legend Akinobu Okada), with 5 more coming next month to complete the 30-card set. Here is the table of contents:

  • Opening Feature: Pennant Race of the Century – Rise Up, Young Tiger Pitchers!
  • Close-up Interview: Yuya Andoh and Shinobu Fukuhara
  • Obituary: GM Katsuhiro Nakamura
  • Another Side View: Andoh and Fukuhara
  • Current Observations: The Final Fight
  • Tigers Diary: Akinobu Okada (Part 1 of 2)
  • Players Note: Ryota Arai
  • Pop ‘N Talk: Suguru Iwazaki
  • Farm Report: Naoto Nishida, Ryoma Matsuda, Kai Ueda
  • Next Generation Interview: Taiga Egoshi
  • Tigers Data Analysis: Hiroki Uemoto, Minoru Iwata, more
