The Yomiuri Giants at home Hero Award for August went to Shinnosuke Abe (determined by fan balloting).

August 2, vs Hiroshima: with the score tied at one with a runner on second and one out in the 6th, Abe hit a liner to left-center that went over the fence and gave the Giants a 3-1 lead. It was Abe's first home run in fourteen games. It was also his first home run out of the clean-up spot this season. [official announcement - box score]
