Is Alex Ramirez a meikyukai player now?

Discussion in the Ask the Commish forum
Is Alex Ramirez a meikyukai player now?
Now that Alex Ramirez has reached more then 2000 hits combined in NPB and MLB, will he become a Meikyukai (club of players with at least 2,000 hits, 200 wins or 250 saves) member?

Ichiro, H.Matsui, and K.Matsui are also Meikyukai members because of the combined 2,000 hits in NPB and MLB.

Martin-san, it's been a while, hasn't it?

The short answer is, no, Ramirez is not yet a member of the Meikyukai. Despite having played most of his career in Japan, he didn't start his career in Japan. That seems to be the new criteria for Nichi-Bei combined statistics.

On the positive side, he may still clear 2,000 in Japan only this season.

More details can be found here.

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.
