Fans to get one last chance to see Yano play at Koshien Stadium?

The Hanshin Tigers will be holding a retirement ceremony for Akihiro Yano after tonight's game against the Yokohama Bay Stars.  And with Yano getting added to the active roster today, it seems he may also get a chance to play with the Ichi-gun roster at Koshien Stadium one last time before he retires at the end of the season.

Of course, depending on the flow of the game, Yano may not get a chance to play -- the Tigers obviously aren't going to risk a possible league title just to get Yano into the game.
