Kintetsu Buffaloes

Discussion in the Book Reviews forum
Kintetsu Buffaloes "Memorial" Magazines
I just picked up two magazines memorializing (for lack of a better word) the franchise formerly known as Kintetsu. One is put out by Nikkan Sports and the other is put out by Weekly Baseball. Both are in Japanese so I really can't give you any major details on content, however, the Weekly Baseball issue has a lot more in the way of statistics and pictures. There is a great picture of Nomo doing his pattented wind-up.

If you hear of any Orix commemorative issues or other magazines detailing the history of any franchise please post it!

I'm looking at the old uniforms and I find it ironic that they stopped existing in their current form in the same month as the the Expos, who also had the tri-color red white and blue hats during the 1980's.
About

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.
