Hanshin, which was founded in 1935, has the second longest history and tradition in the Japanese baseball team after Yomiuri, which was founded in 1934. But there was little to do with winning. It won the Central League in the regular season of the 2023 season, the first win in 18 years. He only won the Japanese Series once 1985.
Hanshin advanced to the Japanese Series this fall with four wins including one win in the first place advantage against Hiroshima Carp in the final stage of the Climax Series. In the Japanese Series, he faced the Orix with three wins and three losses until Game 6 the previous day, and won the game completely to complete the long-awaited Japanese Series title.
Hanshin fans took to the streets to enjoy the joy of their first win in a long time. According to Japanese media, the Osaka authorities deployed 1,300 police officers for fear of the crowds of Hanshin fans who would come to the streets with Hanshin’s victory.
The police were deployed because of the history of Hanshin fans’ victory after-party. Hanshin fans threw KFC statues near the Dotonbori River in Osaka when they won the Japan Series in 1985. The statue was only discovered in 2009 and became a hot topic of conversation. In addition, when Hanshin won the Central League in 2003, about 5,300 people were obtained in the Dotonbori River, and one person died in the process. Again, a large crowd was expected to jump into the Dotonbori River. Police were deployed everywhere to prevent this.
However, it was not possible to stop the passion and joy of Hanshin fans. Hanshin fans hurled themselves into the Dotonbori River through numerous police forces. Some fans enjoyed the joy of winning, showing diving spinning several laps in the air.
