[9/19/2017] Takahiro Arai will still have a big role in 2018

The Hiroshima Carp would like forty-year-old veteran Takahiro Arai to return next year. Arai also seems to be interested in remaining active. He told reporters that while he was at a point in his career where his own feelings were no longer enough to keep him going, he still felt motivated to play when he thought about the cheering fans.
