Tuffy Rhodes Reaches 1,000 RBI
Tuffy Rhodes became just the 28th player in NPB history to gather 1,000 RBIs, and he becomes the first foreign player to do so.

During the April 4th Orix Buffaloes game vs. the Chiba Lotte Marines at Kyocera Dome, Tuffy smacked a 2-run home run in the bottom of the 9th inning giving him 1,001 career RBIs. Tuffy reached the feat in game number 1,325, making him the third fastest player in NPB history to reach the milestone, behind Ochiai Hiromitsu and Fujimura Fumio.

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.
