Katsunari Yoshikawa: 60 pitches in one inning
Orix Buffaloes pitcher Katsunari Yoshikawa tied a Pacific League record after throwing 60 pitches in 1 inning during the September 2, 2005 game against Rakuten. He becomes the second person in Pacific League history to throw that many pitches in one inning, after Kintetsu's Bob Milacki set the record back on June 27, 1997 against Seibu.

The NPB record is 64 pitches in one inning, set by Hanshin's Makoto Yoshino on April 7, 2004 against Yokohama.

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.
