Hanshin's Kyuji Fujikawa Sets New Mound Appearances Record
Hanshin Tigers relief pitcher Kyuji Fujikawa tied the NPB record for most appearances in a season during the September 28th game against the Giants at Koshien Stadium, with his 78th mound appearance of the season. Fujikawa tied the record set in 1961 by Kazuhisa Inao of the Nishitetsu Lions, which was tied in 2001 by Tsuyoshi Kikuchihara of the Hiroshima Carp (currently with Orix). Then, during the September 29th game against the Giants at Koshien Stadium, Fujjikawa made another appearance, breaking the record, in his 79th appearance of the season.

Fujikawa was outstanding this season. I hope he is alright next year, too.
About

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.
