Makoto Kozuru's Name Kanji

Makoto Kozuru's Name Kanji
I noticed that the kanji for Makoto Kozuru are missing from his biography page and the alphabetical player list. I have one of his baseball menko cards, and it has his last name in large kanji. Using John Haig's "New Nelson Japanese-English Character Dictionary," the 1st character is the kun reading "ko" (kanji #1389) and the 2nd character is the kun reading "tsuru" (kanji #6995).

For my personal database of menko baseball cards, I copied these two kanji characters from your biographies of Tadayoshi Kobashi and Naoto Tsuru. The kanji character for Makoto, based on his 2006 BBM "Nostalgic Baseball" card, appears to match Makoto Kosaka's first name kanji. I can provide .jpg scans.

Thank you for pointing that out (and I'm not sure why I didn't enter his name in Kanji when I entered him - that's odd).

His name in kanji has now been entered [Makoto Kozuru's player profile].

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.
