The Pro Yakyu Report 1.42 - The First Draft

The Pro Yakyu Report 1.42 - The First Draft
There are occasionally players who pass on being drafted because they wish to be drafted by a special team. But this week I take a look at the 1965 draft which, while procedurally look similar to today, was nothing like it in other aspects.

Japan Baseball Weekly Podcast to be released on Monday, October 14 featuring the first stage of the playoffs and, depending on today's outcomes, a preview for the second stage. The new Samurai Japan manager and Chunichi's player/manager are also on the agenda. [Japanese Baseball Daily Blog]

A little bird told me that the Tokyo Swallows podcast has been recorded and will be released later this week. It's the year in review, and there are quite a few issues that I'm sure the Tsubame-gun will be covering. [TokyoSwallows.com]

1965年度新人選手選択会議 (日本プロ野球)
About

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.
