Seibu Wins the PL Pennant

Seibu Wins the PL Pennant
Despite being shutout 2-0 by Sweeney and Tateyama (Sweeney threw 8 1/3rd innings of 2-hit ball, 10 grounders) at Sapporo Dome this evening, Rakuten destroyed Orix 13-0 allowing the Lions to back into a clinch for first place in the Pacific League.

I give the Most Emotional Award to batting coach Dave Ohkubo who was roaming the dugout after the game giving everyone a hug and bawling his eyes out. Dave is such a great character.

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.
