A group of businessmen announced on Tuesday that they were working on putting together a new Independent League in Hokkaido.
Dubbed "Baseball Hokkaido," the new league is set to begin in April of 2011.
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.
