[10/18/2015] Softbank Hawks: Kazuyuki Hoashi to retire

by on Oct.18, 2015 @ 5:38 pm, under NPB

Kazuyuki Hoashi held a press conference at YafuOku Dome earlier today and announced that he was retiring. Current and former teammates tried to persuade him to reconsider, but he felt it best to end his career after watching young pitchers develop in the Softbank organization. Said Hoashi, "When I came to Fukuoka, I thought about ending my career here. I take pride in being a part of strong Seibu and Softbank teams. Softbank will continue getting better. I want to watch [the team grow] from close by."
