Hey John! Thanks for putting my question to Bobby. I actually didn't know about the 5-pitch rule in regards to warm up pitches allowed. Some interesting insights and a good interview. It sounds like he has really made the adjustment to the culture of Japanese baseball which I think can often make or break a foreign player in Japan.

My pleasure, Mookster!

Thank you so much for the question and thank you for listening.

Write anytime!

- j.e.g.


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.
