Hits, Ks, SB Records
Just wondering about a few records.
  1. I know Ichiro has the record for most hits in a season in the major leagues. Does he still hold the record in the NPB?
  2. What's the record for strikeouts thrown in a game?
  3. Who has the record for most steals in a season?

1. I know Ichiro has the record for most hits in a season in the major leagues. Does he still hold the record in the NPB?

Yes, Ichiro still holds the season record for hits with 210 in 1994. Yakult's Aoki Norichika came close last season (2005) with 202 hits, setting a new Central League record.

2. What's the record for strikeouts thrown in a game?

Orix's Noda Koji struck out 19 Chiba Lotte Marines on April 21, 1995. Three pitchers are tied for second with 17 strike outs in a game, including Noda again, this time against Kintetsu in 1994.

3. Who has the record for most steals in a season?

Hankyu Braves' Fukumoto Yutaka places in first, second, and third for most stolen bases in a season with 106, 95, and 94 in 1972, '73, and '74 respectively.
