Furuta Becomes 2nd Catcher to Reach 1,000 RBI
Yakult Swallows catcher Atsuya Furuta came on as a pinch hitter during the October 5th game against the Chunichi Dragons, and hit an RBI single to left field, giving him 1,000 career RBI, to become the 27th player in NPB history to reach the mark. He also became just the second catcher in NPB history, after Nomura Katsuya, to achieve the mark. His first RBI came back on April 30, 1990, against the Giants.

If Shinnosuke Abe continues his hitting power for much longer, then maybe he will be the 3rd Catcher to reach 1,000 RBI.

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.
