Team's stars cast as DBS heroes
Dragon Ball Super filler anime recently demonstrated that America's pastime and Saiyan temperament don't really mix particularly well. Yet, that hasn't stopped the venerable Hanshin Tigers pro-team from Nippon Professional Baseball's Central League from joining forces, offering merchandise with shortstop Takashi Toritani as Goku, infielder Fumiya Hojo as No. 17, pitcher Kazuo Ito as Vegeta, outfielder Shun Takayama as Gohan, and catcher Fumihito Haraguchi as Piccolo.
The limited item, to be offered on May 5th, includes t-shirts, smartphone stands and face towels for each of the players, plus buttons, "megabats", clearfiles and sports towel with the group visual.
