Kentaro Sekimoto

Kentaro Sekimoto is yet another player who retired at the end of the 2015 season.  Sekimoto was drafted out of high school in the second round of the 1996 draft by the Tigers (Makoto Imaoka was the first round pick).  He made his ichi-gun debut in 2000 by appearing in 2 games but it wasn't until 2002 that he really made it to the top team.  He was a regular at both second and third base for the Tigers between about 2006 and 2008 and he was a top pinch hitter for the team both before and after that time span.  He played for the Tigers in both the 2003 and 2005 Nippon Series.
