Join legions of Hanshin Tigers fans
Formed in 1935, Hanshin Tigers originally played as the Osaka Tigers and joined the Central League when it was formed in 1950. As one of the oldest professional baseball clubs in Japan, they are also one of the most formidable and best loved. Although one of their most glorious moments came in 1985, when they won the Japan Series for the first time, the Hanshin Tigers have always been assured of their fans' utmost respect and loyalty. Attendance at Hanshin Tigers seasons has peaked at over three million several times in the new millennium, making them the first club to have achieved such record supporter numbers. Known for their fanatical behaviour, boisterous singing, balloon releasing and unusual celebratory rituals (such as jumping into the canal after the famous 1985 series win), Hanshin Tigers fans often outnumber even the home fans when their team is playing away. So no matter whether they're on their home turf or elsewhere, with Hanshin Tigers tickets you're assured of an electric atmosphere and plenty of people to cheer along with.
What's next for the Hanshin Tigers?
Hanshin Tigers fans are without doubt at their most worked up when the team plays against major rivals Yomiuri Giants, who are considered the other main national team ahead of Hiroshima Toyo Carp. They play at home in the Hanshin Koshien Stadium, which is the oldest baseball park in Japan and features a natural grass pitch plus all-dirt infield. The ballpark is actually considered holy - the dirt of the infield especially so - which certainly adds to the sense of occasion if you're watching a match here! Famous former members of the Hanshin Tigers team have included Yutaka Enatsu, Masayuki Kakefu and Randy Bass; the club also contributed several players to MLB and made history by winning an exhibition match against the New York Yankees in 2004. With a long and proud history, ranks bursting with talented and determined players, and even recognition on the international stage, the Hanshin Tigers are a truly exciting team to see in play.
