Masanori Fujihara (藤原正典) - 2012-13 Canberra Cavalry
Fujihara is one of several Japanese imports from the Hanshin Tigers who played with the Canberra Cavalry for first half of the 2012-13 season. He already had three years and 48 games pitching experience in the NPB, but came to Canberra to practice "pitching to right handers". His stint in Canberra was short - only just over a month before departing for his wedding and honeymoon in Hawaii. He pitched 7 games in relief during his time with the Cavalry, gaining a 1-0 record, 10 strikeouts and a perfect ERA of 0.00.
