The First Home Run for Hideki Matsui in NPB
Shingo Takatsu is the pitcher that allowed Hideki Matsui' first home run in his career NPB! Did anyone know about this? And now they are both playing in MLB!

Also, Matsui happened to be the first batter that Takatsu faced in MLB, and they played in the same city this year.

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.
