Notes

General: The players tossed Kimiyasu Kudo into the air nine times. Masayoshi Son (five times) and Nobuhiro Matsuda (six times) were also tossed into the air.

Nippon Series MVP: Dae-Ho Lee

Softbank: The Hawks won their seventh Nippon Series Championship (1959, 1964, 1999, 2003, 2011, 2014, 2015). ... Lee's home run in the 4th inning was reviewed by umpires after it was contested by Yakult manager Mitsuru Manaka. It took umpires about seven minutes to decide the ball was fair (first base umpire told reporters they watched the film about ten times to make sure they made the right call). This marked the first time instant replay was used during a Nippon Series game. For those wondering, officials from the Central and Pacific Leagues were also involved in the review, as was determined before the start of the postseason. Source: Sanspo 10/30/2015

Yakult: This was the second time the Swallows failed to win a championship after making it to the Nippon Series (1992, 2015).
