Monthly Hanshin Tigers – May 2016

A full month of baseball is behind us, and the most exciting change the Tigers have made is the injection of youth in the starting lineup. The newest edition of MHT highlights this new change. Check the table of contents below to find out what is included in this one. Following last month‘s trend, the cover boys, Shintaro Yokota (20) and Shun Takayama (23), are both young recently drafted prospects who are expected to do great things. For people who have subscribed to H-TEN Premium, you will get to read the feature interview later this month. The rest of you are free to ask questions or request other information from me – and if I have the time, I’ll help you out!
