Data Requests [Updated: 2006.11.25]
Please post requests for data here.

Since recieving the 1994 Official Baseball Encyclopedia, I've got all batting and pitching data from 1936 to 1993. The yearly Record Books by BBM that I've got provide batting, pitching, and fielding data from 1995 to present. (Just missing a 1994 source.)

If there is a player within that range that you're interested in and he is not yet in the Player Meikan or does not have a profile, please feel free to ask that I enter him. I'll get to it as soon as I can.

[2004.02.11: I've removed a number of messages attached to this thread as they were not data requests. While some of the discussion was interesting, it was cluttering the purpose of this thread - to request data. Links to other data sites have been reposted under the Links section.]

[2004.05.28: For many of the older stats and bio material, please have a look at the Data Warehouse at]

(If you reached this page while looking for stats for a particular player, please read the FAQ.)

It looks like you are taking requests for stats for great players of the past. I am seeking to gather career totals from great Giant players from the last 40 years. Your web site has been very helpful in gathering most of the players, but I do need help with the following players:
    P Suguru Egawa
    P Tsuneo Horiuchi
    P Shigeru Kobayashi
    P Kazumi Takahashi
    P Hisao Niura
    P Takashi Nishimoto
    P Mitsuo Sumi
    C Kazuhiro Yamakura
    C Yukio Yaegashi
    1B Kiyoshi Nakahata
    2B Shozo Doi
    2B Toshio Shinozuka
    SS Kazumasa Kono
    SS Yokinobu Kuroe
    OF Isao Shibata
    OF Isao Harimoto
    OF Tadashi Matsumoto
    OF Tamio Suetsugu
    OF Kazuhiro Yamauchi
    OF/3B Shigeru Takada
I want to thank you (Michael and Jim) for all the hard work you do for us non-Japanese fans who have an interest in NPB. Your efforts are greatly appreciated by the many fans who rely upon this web site.

When NPB BIS dropped (forgot about) their English web pages, you really were (and are) a lifesaver. You not only filled the statistical void, you made it better (your stats are much better).

I realize that this is an old thread, but I just need to add this.

Hiromitsu Kadota

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.
