The Curse of Colonel Sanders
As we well know, baseball curses are no joke. Remember, the Boston Redsox's Curse of the Bambino which left the team not being able to win another MLB World Series for 86 years! For the Hanshin Tigers, the story starts in 1985 after the Tigers won the Japan Championship Series, fans became delirious with ecstasy and were throwing themselves into the (heavily polluted) river! There was reason to their madness however, when the crowd called out members of the team, people who looked like that team member jumped into the river. However, with noone looking like American power-hitter and MVP, Randy Bass, the fans threw in the local KFC’s statue of Colonel Sanders (both had a beard) instead. Over the years, pieces of the statue have been found and are being extracted. Despite the fact that he is still missing some parts, the Tigers have made it to the playoffs and have managed to finish with some winning seasons starting in 2003. Will the curse end when they find the last pieces of the statue? You don't want to miss out on the suspense and excitement! Buy your Hanshin Tigers tickets today and cheer them on as they face one of the biggest curses in baseball history!
