Masashi Nohara (野原将志)- 2011-12 Canberra Cavalry

Nohara was a Japanese import from the Hanshin Tigers who played with Canberra during the 2011-12 season. Made his NPB debut for Hanshin in August 2011, playing two games in his NPB rookie year. Nohara only played 8 games for the Cavalry before being recalled by Hanshin. He was impressive during his short ABL stint, earning an ABL Player of the Week award, hitting a .355 batting average, and being the league's RBI leader at the time of his recall.

Because of his early recall, I was only able to get a photo of him in the away uniform that the Cavalry were using at the start of the 2011-12 season, as their new home uniforms had yet to arrive. My shots of nearly all the other Cavalry players for 2011-12 feature the players in their predominantly white home uniform.
