Monthly Hanshin Tigers – September 2016

I am starting to wonder if Monthly Hanshin Tigers does its cover stories in cycles. The man on the front also graced the cover last year in September. 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!
