I'm excited about this. I just read about Kano in Andrew Morris's Colonial Project, National Game.

The anti-Japanese Nationalist Government has always portrayed the Maple Leaf Little League team as what ignited Taiwanese baseball. The history goes back even earlier.
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.
