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 is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
