Nippon Ham Sets New Strikeout Record by Batters
The Nippon Ham Fighters have set a new NPB record for team batting strikeouts, with the batters striking out a combined total of 1,151 times in the 2005 season. This breaks the previous record they set back in 2003 at 1,148. The Central League record for team batting strikeouts is 1,120 set by Yokohama in 2002.

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.
