Translation – Murton Officially Finished with Tigers

Original article (from Murton’s website) can be found here


Hello, everyone.

The other day, I received official notice from the Hanshin Tigers baseball club that they would not be offering me a contract for 2016.

I am filled with thanks as I think of all the fans that have cheered me on and everyone in Kobe who has taken care of my family over the last six years.

Without your support, I could not have performed at the level that I did for these six seasons.

I’m really sad to be parting ways with you all, but at the same time I am excited for the upcoming challenges that await me.

I wish you all much happiness.

Don’t forget that Jesus loves you all.

God bless!

Love, the Murton family
