(Japanese) It was 1995 when Nomo first came here. Some people at this museum might not have been born at the time, but 1995 turned out to be a very special year. Nomo tested himself here and that year both won the Rookie of the Year award and was chosen as the starting pitcher at the All-Star game in Texas. American fans and Japanese fans alike, regardless of national borders, were overjoyed. That year, I think Nomo made baseball a truly wonderful thing.
