So the field has been announced for the upcoming 87th Haru Koushien (aka Senbatsu). And while I goofed in only putting one team from the Hokushinetsu and Tokai regions in my projections, had I done it properly, I would have had all but one of the main 29.

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.
