What Team Should I Watch?
I am new to Japanese baseball and I am having a hard time deciding what to call my favorite or call my own. When it comes to MLB I am a huge A's fan. I personally prefer a DH because watching a pitcher bat is just sad to me. Any ideas on how to help me find a team to call my own?

Thank You!

You know, I'm new to the game too.

I adopted the Dragons. We are currently third in the league after all the pundits picked 'em to finish at the bottom of the standings.

In addition, only has about 5 Dragon fans.

So I humbly suggest that you join our little revolution here!

I like Yokohama BayStars in the CL and Chiba Lotte Marines in the PL.

I do not recommend people to support Yokohama because it is depressing. Having lots of Yokohama pride and love I really like Yokohama, the city, Kannai, Yamashita Park, Motomachi, Hamasuta [Yokohama S(u)tadium], the team, etc.; but there comes a time where apathy takes over and you start to block out the team.

I find this a bit out how this keeps coming up. Wouldn't you just watch the league for a while and then root for the team you end up liking rather than being told who to root for?

Where do you live? Supporting the local team is never a bad idea. ^_~ Living in Tokyo, I get to choose between two teams, and I picked the Swallows because they're not the team that throws money around.

Actually, I fell in love with the Swallows because they were the first team I watched, even though both games were losing ones. Besides, Aoki plays for the Swallows. If he moves, I might.

I'm a Tigers fan cause I love their fan support and they seem to be a contender every year despite this year's play. They can make a very exciting streak and have the whole Hyogo prefecture behind them, even if they are out of post-season contention. Go go Tigers!

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.
