Hanshin Tigers' Matt Murton

With less than 48 hours before the Kansai Franklin Graham Festivals begin, there is some exciting news for the FGF office.

The breaking news is that Matt Murton is now scheduling to make an appearence as a special guest every night of the Kansai Franklin Graham Festivals.

You might remember my earlier post about Hanshin Tiger outfielder Matt Murton or you might have hear in the news of his new Japanese professional baseball record by making 214 hits in his rookie season; breaking Ichiro Suzuki's 1994 record of 210 hits in a season.

For Hanshin fans or baseball fans... or those of you who want to invite the favorite baseball fan in your life to the Festival, here's some great incentive.

For more information on the Festival:
