HANSHIN TIGERS

Written by Muka

NOTE: THE INFORMATION BELOW WAS BASED ON THE DEFAULT "OUT OF THE BOX" VERSION. IN 2010 THERE WERE 3 PATCHES WHICH WERE BASICALLY ROSTER UPDATES. THUS, IF YOU ARE RUNNING A FULLY PATCHED GAME THIS INFORMATION WILL NOT BE 100% ACCURATE BECAUSE SOME PLAYERS MOVED TO DIFFERENT TEAMS.

The Tigers are probably the 2nd most popular team behind the Yomiuri Giants.

Default Line-up (Name - Uniform - Position):

1. Murton - #9 - CF 2. Hirano - #5 - 2B 3. Toritani - #1 - SS 4. Kanemoto - #6 - LF 5. Arai - #25 - 3B 6. Johjima - #2 - C 7. Brazell - #67 - 1B 8. Sakurai - #51 - RF 9. Pitcher

MLB fans are most likely familiar with Murton and Johjima.

Murton is hitting great in Japan, .385 and 4 homeruns at the moment, and he received a nice offensive upgrade in the first roster update patch from Konami on April 26. he has C for contact now and better power so def donwload the patch if you are a hanshin fan.

Johjima has the "Power hitter" skill in the game meaning if you place a power swing perfectly you will most likely go yard. He also has the "Pull" hitter skill meaning he is an extreme pull hitter.

Kanemoto has the Prevent Injury Up 3 skill meaning he will most likely never be injured in Pennat since he had a world record iron man streak going (even longer than Cal Ripken). The streak finally ended after this thread jinxed him (jk). He decided to sit out ysterday (APril 18), ending the consecutive, all-innings, all games played streak at 1,492. He also has the "Line Drive" special skill meaning his hits will always be lower arching, line-drive type homerun, etc.

First baseman Brazell has very high power rating. He is one of the few hitters in the game with the 7 arc, meaning he will hit balls very very high producing lots of HIGH flyouts, pop ups, and homeruns.

Bench players to watch:

- Sekimoto (#3, 2B) - you can use him as your 2B in a platoon when you face a left handed pitcher - Katsuragi (#33, OF/1B) - he is often used in late game situations as a defensive 1B in real life

Pitching Staff:

This team doesn't really have a good starting staff. No one can be considered an ace but obviously if you look at the attributes, Nohmi (#14) is your best starter.

The superstar of the pitching staff is Closer - Fujikawa (#22). His fastball is the best in the entire game and he has a unique special skills called "the Fire Ball". Let's just say this makes his fastball really powerful and unhittable.
