As a Hanshin Tigers fan, as I have mentioned in a previous post, I had been looking forward to reading this book for a long time. My review of The Sportsworld of the Hanshin Tigers: Professional Baseball in Modern Japan by William W. Kelly (Oakland: University of California Press, 2019, pp.315. ISBN 9780226558554) has been published in Japan Forum. It can be found at https://doi.org/10.1080/09555803.2020.1776754
