Newcombe Asked about Time in Japan

Newcombe Asked about Time in Japan
Don Newcombe, the former Brooklyn Dodgers pitching great, talks about his time in Japan when asked here in a discussion at MLB.com:
mlb_com_member: How was it to play in Japan when you left the Dodgers?

Newcombe: It was a great experience. I went over because I was playing a position I had never played before -- first base. I didn't do very well as a first baseman so they moved me to right field but I didn't do very well there. But in left field, I made just two errors in 80 games. I adjusted to it and adapted to it and it turned out pretty well for me.
About

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.
