Comment: Hirano has been batting second since he is in Hanshin. He never fails to advance his lead-off with his bunts. However his impressive AVG (2nd best of the League) proves him to be also an efficient batter. Thanks to his sharp reflexes he quickly became the tenured 2B of Hanshin. Being responsive in defense, he is also capable of playing as CF or RF in case of need.
