While I try to focus on Japanese American photography for my collection I have a small but nice collection of Japanese photos as well. Ran into this photo and had to add it to my collection - what a great shot of the ' Best ' baseball player in Japan.

Fortunately, the reverse is captioned. Would someone translate the reverse?

Thank you!

Toritoribe, do you think that is a first name or last name?
