Some notes:

  • Masahiro Tanaka is the first player to record all possible votes since Kenji Jojima and Tadahito Iguchi in 2003.  He also joined Kazuhisa Inao (1958) and Hideyuki Awano (1989) as the only pitchers in the awards history to sweep all votes.
  • Shinnosuke Abe has won the Best Nine the last seven years in a row.  That is the third longest streak for a catcher in the awards history, behind Katsuya Nomura (thirteen) and Masaaki Mori (eight).
  • Voters are baseball reporters with five or more years of experience from all across Japan.  There were 266 votes in CL and 228 votes in the PL.
