The Yomiuri Giants announced that Yoshitaka Katori stepped down as general manager, effective today.
I decided to step down because I want to take responsibility for not being able to win a championship. Since taking over as general manager in June last year, I have tried to work closely with the coaches and staff. I did my best to support Yoshinobu Takahashi, but in the end, it was not enough. I hope the team, under Takahashi, can rally together and advance through the Climax Series.
