Mike Hall (
Mike was the cleanup hitter for the Bears. In one season, he had hit seventy-nine home runs before the final game, which was held Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan. Mike managed to hit his eightieth home run, setting a world record. Tsukushi Makino caught the baseball, which he signed after the game. The ball was later auctioned online and sold for two hundred million yen.
