What Does the Banner Say?

The closest translation in English is "Good Luck! Ichiro & Giant Man." Kazuhiro Sasaki's nickname in Japan ("Daimajin") roughly translates to "Giant Man," but more specifically it means "giant hero of a man that saves the people." In Japan, that name is used much more often than Sasaki. We wish Ichiro, Sasaki and all the All-Stars the best of luck!
