Hanshin Tigers Week: Sunday - After a WIN!
A win at Koshien is a great thing to see, but don’t just head for the door once the game draws to a close, there be celebrations!

First, more balloons! If a clear win is in sight then everyone will have their balloons ready to launch the moment it happens, so be ready! Hopefully you didn’t use them all during the lucky 7th :)

Next up is the hero announcement where a player(or players) is crowned the game hero for their outstanding contribution to the win. They’ll do a quick interview on the diamond before taking a spin around the field in a little electric car while the crowd sing Rokko Oroshi! This is usually where most people start to file out…

BUT if you’re in the right outfield, hang about! Remember this is the fanatic stand, we stay until very the end! Next it’s customary to do all the player chants, corresponding to the batting order of the day, Wada’s(team manager and ex-player) name usually makes it in there too.

Staying right until the end is awesome, seeing the rest of the stadium so empty and celebrating with the diehards is a must!

You will get booted out eventually though, so head for the highway at the front of the stadium! Here you’ll catch some of the Tigers Ouendan(cheer squad) celebrating in style, chanting, dancing back and forth – you should most definitely join in! After that it’s probably time to make a move, the train station will still be pretty busy so be prepared for a bit of a wait.

If you’ve been checking out this week’s posts then thanks for dropping by and I hope you get a chance to go to Koshien soon!

Ō-ō-ō-ō Hanshin Tigers
Fure-fure-fure-fure!
