Aoki Breaks CL Hit Record
[ Author: Jingu Bleacher Bum | Posted: Oct 6, 2005 6:40 PM | YAK Fan ]

During his first at bat against the Chunichi Dragons at Jingu Stadium on October 6th, Aoki lined a 1-1 pitch into left field for hit number 193, breaking the 192 hits record held by Bobby Rose. Congratulations Aoki. I know 200 is still 7 more hits away, but only 1 other person in NPB history has done it, Ichiro Suzuki, and that's saying something right there.

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.
