Hanshin won 4-3 in the home game against Yomiuri held at Koshien Stadium in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan on the 14th. With this, Hanshin, who erased the magic number ‘1’, regained the top spot in the Central League for the first time in 18 years since 2005, regardless of the remaining games, with 80 wins, 4 draws, and 44 losses in the season.

Veteran coach Okada Akinobu (65) led Hanshin from 2004 to 2008 and led them to the championship in 2005, and this year he returned as a ‘winning contractor’ wearing the Hanshin uniform again.

Hanshin will advance directly to the Climax Series final stage and compete for advancement to the Japan Series with the winner of the first stage, where the league’s second and third place clash. In Japanese professional baseball, winning the league is more important than the postseason.

Hanshin won the Central League championship for the fifth time in 2005, and if they win the Climax Series this time, they will win the championship for the sixth time. The first and last time Hanshin won the Japan Series was in 1985.

As of the 13th, Hanshin is the most popular team in terms of audience mobilization, ranking first among the 12 teams in Japan’s two major leagues with a cumulative season audience of 2,617,114 and an average of 40,892 per game.

The Japanese police, concerned that various accidents may occur in Dotonbori, which was once again overcrowded due to Hanshin’s win, sent notices to foreign embassies, including the Korean Consulate General in Osaka, asking tourists to refrain from visiting Dotonbori from the 12th to the 17th.
