...As part of their 60th anniversary celebration, the Hiroshima Carp, in cooperation with Chunichi Shimbun, is running a project called "The Carp Stars." A total 19 players from Carp history (some selected by fans) were selected and will be getting their own bronze reliefs that will be on display in the promenade.

The first presentation (to be made before the game 4/3, or 4/4 if there's a rain cancellation) of bronze reliefs will be for the following five players:

1950's Selection
Ryohei Hasegawa - relief
Hiromu Fujii - relief
Katsumi Shiraishi - relief

Retired Number Players
Koji Yamamoto
Sachio Kinugasa
