[11/8/2018] Tomohiro Nioka to manage BCL Toyama

Tomohiro Nioka is set to manager the BC League’s Toyama Thunderbirds next season. Toyama announced earlier today that they reached an agreement with the forty-two-year-old. They released the following statement from Nioka:

I wanted to work with the players that were striving to become better after discovering how the BC League was improving every year. I will be happy if I can help players grow, even a little, with the experience I gained as a player and coach. I am also looking forward to becoming a part of the Toyama community.

As manager, I hope to both help myself and the players grow throughout the course of a season.
