Trying to identify a Dominican pitcher
According to (scroll down to near the end), there was a pitcher on the 2007 Pan American Games roster for the Dominican Republic named Jose Gonzalez who was active in a Japanese league. This doesn't match anybody in NPB. Could he have been in the industrial leagues? Can anyone figure out who this hurler was?

I've found two potential references to a Jose Gonzalez in Japanese baseball.

The first reference is too young. This Jose Gonzalez is an exchange student from the Dominican to Sendai Ikuei High School [Link - in Japanese].

The second reference sounds very promising. This Jose Gonzalez comes out of the Carp Academy in the Dominican and last year played for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Yokohama [Link]. While there's not enough information to completely verify that this is the one, it seems the most likely.

Hope this helps.

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.
