The Pro Yakyu Report 1.37 - One Chance
Daily, players in NPB are shuffled between the top team (ichi-gun) and farm team (ni-gun). 48 times so far this season a player was called up for just one day before being sent back down. Why?

That's what I explore this week.

Nippon Ham's Bobby Keppel is the feature interview on this week's Japan Baseball Weekly Podcast coming out September 9. I'm guessing that Ma-kun and Balentien are now to be regular segments of the show until the end of the season. And the duo plan on discussing rookies from both leagues along with some listener questions.

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.
