MLB World Series Viewers In Japan ?
Any idea of how many people in Japan are watching Tazawa and Uehara pitch in the World Series?

Even with the two Japanese (one star and one "who's he, again?") on the Red Sox, viewership of the game live in Japan is limited by two major factors:

1. It's on at 10:00 am on week days.
2. It's only on cable TV.

These two factors will limit the viewing to a very small percentage of housewives who happen to have cable TV, which is nowhere near the percentage of the population that has cable in the U.S.

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.
