Eri Yoshida Shines
Yesterday (May 29) 18-year-old female knuckleball pitcher Eri Yoshida had a stellar debut for the Chico Outlaws of the Golden Baseball League. You can read the extraordinary story of this gifted young Japanese athlete on the ESPN website.

A wonderful and inspiring story indeed. I will try to gather a group to go see her pitch in late July when the Outlaws come north to Canada for a three-game series vs. the Victoria Seals. Sugoi!

Another story about Eri Yoshida I missed yesterday, nicely written up in the NY Times.

And there are several Japanese interviews and stories about her as well, on YouTube.
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.
