Home Run Entertainment?

Discussion in the Ask the Commish forum
Home Run Entertainment?
I'm wondering if anyone could point me to some YouTube videos of classic/iconic home runs from Japanese baseball. Or any good/funny videos of home runs in general?

Thank you!

To start with, there was the home run that Shigeo Nagashima hit while the Emperor watched his first baseball game on June 25, 1959, commonly referred to as 天覧試合 or the Emperor's Game. This is one of the most iconic games in Pro Yakyu history. This search will reveal that game and many others in the results.

Then this is a compilation of Sadaharu Oh's home runs. There's even a home run competition against Hank Aaron in there.

Then there's Koji Akiyama's back flipping at home plate after a home run. He's done it a lot.

That should get you started.

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.
