Hanshin vs Chunichi at Koshien

The Japanese baseball season officially ended yesterday, with the Rakuten Eagles defeating the Giants in game 7 to win the Nippon Series. Congratulations to them!
For the Tigers, we had the usual ups (such as finishing 2nd in the Central League) and downs (for instance being swept in the play-offs). Maybe one day they will be consistent enough to get some silverware. The potential is definitely there.

Anyway, to wait until the new season next March, here are a few photos I took back in July, when the Tigers hosted the Dragons at Koshien (and won 8-1).

The photos feature Matt Murton, Ryota Arai, Takashi Toritani, Katsuhiko Saka, Yamato, and of course two of the team mascots, Lucky and To-Lucky.

As always, questions are welcome in the comments, and you can click on the photos to see larger versions.
