Little news of Hanshin’s dramatic defeat to Chunichi has permeated through to the Korean media, but thanks to the wonderful internet there’s plenty of video clips online.

Here’s a video of the post-game ceremonies- from 0.36 onwards you can see Manager Okada being thrown in the air as the traditional send-off after 5 years in charge. He’s in tears as he shakes the hands of the players, and you can see Fujikawa (number 22) also in tears, bowing and apologising for his mistake which handed Chunichi the victory. All so sad!

Here’s a clip from the last game of the season, Hanshin having lost the Championship.

Expect a review of Hanshin’s season after the Climax Series and Nippon Series are over.
