Monthly Hanshin Tigers – October 2016

Fresh blood on this month’s Monthly Hanshin Tigers cover! I have been expecting this lad to grace the cover for awhile now, and at last the time has come! The magazine arrived a day before it hit stands, one of the perks of being 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!
