Yasuaki Taiho's School

Discussion in the Open Talk forum
Yasuaki Taiho's School
I was working on a bio of Yasuaki Taiho for Baseball-Reference. Japan Baseball Daily lists his college as Nagoya Shogyo University but a Google search doesn't bring up this school. Is it the same as Nagoya University?

He went to Nagoya University of Commerce & Business, which is different from Nagoya University.

Natuskashii indeed. Taihou was playing for the Tigers when I arrived in Japan years ago.

I've always liked the female stadium announcers in Japan: "yon-ban, Tai-hou" had a nice ring to it.

"TAIHOUUUUU SAKURETSU!" from the TV is another one I remember.

So natsukashii that I got it wrong. The first line should read: Toshiiiii tagiraseeeee.

Toraphiles will notice that I mistakenly took the first line from Imaoka's Hitting March from the old days.

At least you didn't confuse it with Kataoka's original song about the the hot tub or whatever it was.

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.
