The Pro Yakyu Report Vol. 1.20 - First Pitches

Discussion in the Bayside West: Yokohama forum
The Pro Yakyu Report Vol. 1.20 - First Pitches
During the BayStars vs. Giants game on May 11, 2013 in Niiganta, the announcers commented that the BayStars were going after a lot of first pitches from Tomoyuki Sugano. In this episode, I explore that claim and find an interesting result.

Pocket Calendar

Inter-league mini-season starts Tuesday, May 14 and goes on through Thursday, June 20.

The Japan Baseball Weekly Podcast shall be released on may 13 covering an interview with Matt Clark (Chunichi), fellow Dragon Tanishige's 2,000th hit, and the Monthly MVP awards for April.

Know of any upcoming NPB related events? Would you like me to cover a specific topic? How about becoming a guest on the show? If you answered "yes" to any of the above, please leave a note on either the Bayside West: Yokohama blog.

Awesome Stuff!! Where do you get the box scores?

One thing on my list is to get to a 3 game Baystar home series against any other Central League team!!

Thanks for all of your coverage! Much appreciated!!

Take Care,

Thank you.

The box score is from a service I've written for Major League clubs. The layout is very standard in both Japan and Korea. I don't know why Americans tolerate those simple tables that pass as box scores over there.

As for a three game series against another CL club, you'll have to wait until the end of June when Inter-league ends. Just a month or so to go. I hope you enjoy it.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
