With Takashi Toritani on first and one out in the top of the 4th against the Yomiuri Giants, Tomoaki Kanemoto deposited the second pitch he saw from Ryosuke Miyaguni into the right field bleachers for his 475th career home run.  That moved the forty-four-year-old veteran outfielder out of a tenth place tie with Koichi Tabuchi on the all-time home run list.

Kanemoto recorded the first home run of his career on September 4, 1993.
