Norihiro Akahoshi, a fan favourite, announced his retirement from Nippon Pro Yakyu yesterday. My favourite Hanshin player, he adorns this blog in the banner at the top, and will be remembered by me and all other Hanshin fans for his excellent steals, and fierce character. He will be more than missed- always an integral member of the lineup, his stealing and lead-off runs contributed to many victories over the years since he joined the Tigers in 2001. What more can be said? He stole one hell of a lot of bases, and always performed, achieving excellent ERA’s even as all around him was faltering, particularly in the 2008 season.

He will be missed. 赤星さん、お疲れ様でした!
