It is still my feeling that I experienced the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake in 1995 and fought with my fans under” Ganbaro KOBE “to win the championship. It’s engraved in my heart. It’s been a long time since then, and Nakajima, who was a senior of Orix at that time, led the team to the league championship for the first time in 25 years with the director and the players who were not born at that time. I’m very impressed with that. Today’s victory may have evoked a passion for both the fans who shared those unforgettable days and the fans who didn’t know the time. I’m looking forward to the next one in Japan. Seattle Mariners Ichiro “
