The Hiroshima Toyo Carp have posted some photos of Andy Phillips at their official site.
Apparently, they think he's good-looking. According to the Google translation, it says (among other things):
Tom Cruise?!! Brad Pitt?!! Female fans must see!!! Phillips played in Japan's new foreign player studmuffin, held a press conference after signing.
It looks like the rest is what he said at the press conference. He thinks living in Japan will be a good experience for his family, some comments on the field and how he'll try to hit. He also says his lucky number is 2, hence his choice of 22 as a jersey number.
Yes, the Carp logo looks a lot like the Cincinnati Reds' logo. So much so that ESPN can't tell the difference
