Monthly Hanshin Tigers – August 2016

I thought for sure we would see someone else on the cover of the new Monthly Hanshin Tigers. But then why not put the 2,000 hit man front and center? He also graced the cover last year in August. As a subscriber, I also received a little envelope with 6 player cards with my magazine… by year’s end I’ll have the entire collection of 30! Here’s the rundown of the rest of the magazine’s contents. H-TEN Premium Subscribers, you’ll receive your interview translation a little later in the month!
