A player blessed with tremendous speed, a strong arm, and a great baseball mind, Tabe played all over the diamond at Meiji University. After graduation, he joined the Dai Nippon Tokyo team, the precursor of the Yomiuri Giants, for their
110 game barnstorming tour of the U.S. He stole a remarkable 105 bases on the tour. However, Tabe quit the team prior to the Giants' joining Japan Pro Baseball due to perceived poor treatment. He later joined Japan's war effort and was
killed in Okinawa in 1945.
