Card Of The Week April 22

Kotaro Kiyomiya, the Fighters 1st round pick in last fall's draft has been having a slow start to his professional career.  He came into last Friday's ni-gun Fighters game batting just .111 in his first 7 games.  On Friday however he hit his first two professional home runs (both three run jacks off of Yuji Nishino of the Marines) and followed that up today with a solo home run off of Lotte's Kazunari Abe.  He's raised his average up to .219 with his big weekend.

Here's the videos of the home runs (courtesy of Pacific League TV of course):

I've got both the new Calbee Series One and BBM 1st Version sets in the mail the other day.  I've been in-processing both sets (along with the BBM Hawks 80th Anniversary set) for the last couple days.  I should get to posts for all three sets in the next few days.  In the meantime, here's Kiyomiya's cards from the Calbee and 1st Version sets:
