Kansai University Economics professor Katsuhiro Miyamoto apparently announced today that if Senichi Hoshino becomes manager of the Rakuten Eagles, he would have an estimated economic impact of 18.8B yen for Miyazaki Prefecture.

Prof. Miyamoto arrived at the number based on things like an increase in attendance (from 16,000 to 19,000), Hoshino merchandising opportunities, and an increase in broadcast revenue.
