Nichi-Bei Yakyu in 2008?
Does anyone know if there will be a MLB - NPB series this year after the season? I believe they have generally held the series every other year, but with the coming Olympics and WBC I was wondering if they might give it a rest this year.

I don't know why they continue the Nichi-Bei Series after the birth of the WBC. The Nichi-Bei Series is just a goodwill exhibition series that doesn't mean anything, but promoting MLB to Japanese fans. It's not even televised in the US. Who wants to see NPB players take on the best of MLB players from around the world? Japan versus the World? What's the use of that when we have the WBC?

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.
