For those who are wondering, the last Lotte rookie pitcher to achieve double digit wins was Atsushi Aramaki, who made his debut with the Mainichi Orions in 1950, winning 26 games, along with the Rookie of the Year award. You can find his career stats from Japanese Baseball Daily's Data Warehouse.

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.
