[9/10/2018] Shigeru Kaga to retire after the season

The Yokohama Bay Stars announced today that they received and accepted a request to retire from Shigeru Kaga.

More than the happy memories or the fun memories, I remember the difficult rehab I had to go through because of my injury. I was able to get this far with the support of the trainers and everyone else that supported me. There were times I received critical comments from the fans, but their warm support during my appearances helped push me over the top.

Thank you for the nine years. I am really grateful for being able to have a happy baseball life.

The team is fighting for a chance to make the Climax Series. I believe we will make the Climax Series and become champions this year. The Bay Stars have a lot of young players so please continue to support them!
