[3/22/2017] Softbank Hawks: 1(Won)derful Stripe 2017 Uniforms

The Softbank Hawks announced that their Taka-no Saiten 2017 series will take place over eight games this season. They also unveiled the alternate uniforms they will be wearing during the series (modeled by Yuki Yanagita and Dennis Sarfate).

The stripes on the uniform look like the red stitching on a baseballs, but are actually based on the image of a Hawk flapping its wings. The color red (or Kachidoki Red) makes a return. The team went 6-2 when wearing Kachidoki Red during the Taka-no Saiten series in 2014.

Taka-no Saiten 2017 Schedule

The Hawks will also wear the alternate uniforms during four other games.

Replica uniforms will be handed out for free to all ticket holders (with some exceptions) during the eight Taka-no Saiten games listed above.

[3/18/2017] Seigi Tanaka to start the year at Ni-gun

The media learned on March 18 that Seigi Tanaka will start the year at Ni-gun. He had some difficulty with fatigue toward the end of spring camp and never really managed to get into a groove. The Softbank Hawks want to give him extra time to work through any remaining issues he might have and get a fresh start.
