Yano got into two Nippon Series with the Giants, winning in 2012 against the Fighters but losing in 2013 against the Eagles (Masahiro Tanaka stuck him out to end Game Seven in the rain in Sendai). He was back on the winning side in the Nippon Series in 2016 with the Fighters.
His first BBM cards were #5 from the 2003 Rookie Edition set and #29 from the 2003 BBM 1st Version set. His first Calbee card was #210 from the 2005 set.
