Notes

Atsuya Furuta is in the broadcast booth. ... Inaba was a guest in the booth for the 2nd inning; Karakawa was a guest in the booth for the 4th inning and the top of the 5th; Yoshinori entered the broadcast booth in the bottom of the 4th and the top of the 5th; Sawamura entered the broadcast booth in the top of the 8th.

Central League: Sakamoto's homer in the 5th was his first ASG homer of his career. ... Utsumi was the third base coach in the 9th; he stopped Sakamoto from rounding third and got some flack from the players on the bench of not allowing Sakamoto to continue on to home. ... Enokida became the first Hanshin rookie to pitch in consecutive ASG since Jiro Ueda in 1970.

Pacific League: Nakamura told reporters after the home run derby he didn't have his best swing and that he would save a little something for the game.

Awards

MVP Award: Nakamura

Strong Competitor Award: Sakamoto

    Nakamura is a wonderful player to watch. When he delivers he does it for good. I hope he’ll be breaking Oh’s record one day.
