Card Of The Week March 30

Opening Night Eiichi Koyano of the Fighters hit a bases loaded single in the bottom of the twelfth inning to beat the Orix Buffaloes 6-5.  I just recently discovered (via NPB Tracker) that Pacific League TV has a highlights page which allows me to add the video of the hit:

Here's Koyano's 2004 BBM Fighters card (#F53):

Thanks for the link to the Pacific League video page! There's some fun stuff there, but picking a video to watch is a crapshoot for someone like me whose Japanese vocabulary consists mainly of yakyu, gaijin, domo arigato, sayonara, ichi, ni, san, shi, go and roku.

At least "sayonara" factored in to this video. :-D

The game highlights are labelled "ダイジェスト" which Google translates as "digest". The Hero Interviews are labelled "ヒーローインタビュー".
