Card Of The Week February 9

Former Saitama Seibu Lion Ryan Spilborghs announced last week that he was retiring from baseball to become a broadcaster for the Colorado Rockies.  Spilborghs played seven years in the majors from 2005 to 2011 and signed with the Lions after a 2012 season that he spent in AAA in the Indians and Rangers organization.  He played just the one season for the Lions.

The open-sen game I went to last March at Seibu Dome was the Lions' first home game of the exhibition season.  They did an on-field introduction of all the new Lions players before the game started.  I'm not positive, but I think Spilborghs is the third from the left.
