Monthly Hanshin Tigers – November 2017

Another season has come to an end, and a few more players have shed their uniforms for the last time. This month’s magazine primarily takes a look at the careers of three long-time players: a veteran pitcher who started, closed and set up, a charming slugger who came in mid-career and showed bursts of potential, and steady pinch hitter (and one-time catcher).
