The Kobe 9 Cruise announced that their new manager will be former Hanshin pitcher, Yutaka Ikeuchi.

Yoshihiro Nakada opened the year as manager for Kobe but was replaced partway through the season by interim manager Shinichi Murakami.  Ikeuchi will be taking over for Murakami.

The Kansai Independent League has also partnered with a management company Ikeuchi works for in order to provide support to players that have been released by teams in the league.
