Wikipedia - Hanshin Tigers

The Hanshin Tigers (阪神タイガース, Hanshin Taigāsu) are a Nippon Professional Baseball team playing in the Central League. The team is based in Nishinomiya, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan, next to their main stadium, Hanshin Koshien Stadium.

The Tigers are owned by Hanshin Electric Railway Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Hankyu Hanshin Holdings Inc.

The Hanshin Tigers are one of the oldest professional clubs in Japan. They played their first season in 1936 as the Osaka Tigers and assumed their current team name in 1961.

History

Kōshien Stadium in 2009

The Hanshin Tigers, the second-oldest professional club in Japan, were founded on December 10, 1935, with the team being formed in 1936. The team was first called Ōsaka Tigers. In 1940, amid anti-foreign sentiment and the Tojo government's ban on English nicknames, the Tigers changed the name to simply Hanshin. In 1947, the team reverted to Ōsaka Tigers after the JPBL mandated English nicknames. The current team name was assumed in 1961 due to the team playing in the suburb of Nishinomiya, which is not in Osaka Prefecture.

The Tigers won four titles before the establishment of the two-league system in 1950. Since the league was split into the Central League and Pacific League, the Tigers have won the Central League pennant six times (1962, 1964, 1985, 2003, 2005, 2023) and Japan Series twice (1985, 2023).

When the 2004 Major League Baseball season began in Japan, the Tigers played an exhibition game against the New York Yankees at the Tokyo Dome on March 29. The Tigers won 11–7.

In 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2009, more than three million people attended games hosted by the Tigers, the only one of the 12 Nippon Professional Baseball teams to achieve this.

The home field, Koshien Stadium, is used by high school baseball teams from all over Japan for the national championship tournaments in spring and summer. The summer tournament takes place in the middle of the Tigers' season, forcing the Tigers to go on a road trip and play their home games at Kyocera Dome Osaka. Fans call this "The Road of Death".

Famous players in Hanshin Tigers history include Fumio Fujimura, Masaru Kageura, Minoru Murayama, Yutaka Enatsu, Masayuki Kakefu, Randy Bass, Taira Fujita, and many others.

The Hanshin Tigers are a professional baseball team based in Nishinomiya, Hyogo, Japan. They are one of the oldest and most popular teams in the Nippon Professional Baseball league. The team was established in 1935 and has a rich history of success, winning multiple championships over the years.

The Tigers are known for their passionate fan base, who are known as some of the most dedicated and enthusiastic supporters in Japanese baseball. The team's home games are played at the iconic Koshien Stadium, which is one of the oldest baseball stadiums in Japan and holds a special place in the hearts of Tigers fans.

The team's colors are black, white, and yellow, and their mascot is a tiger named "To Lucky." The Tigers have a fierce rivalry with the Yomiuri Giants, which is one of the most intense and storied rivalries in Japanese baseball.

The Hanshin Tigers have a strong tradition of developing talented players and have produced many stars who have gone on to have successful careers in both Japan and Major League Baseball. The team continues to be a powerhouse in Japanese baseball and a beloved institution for fans across the country.
