Adult Leagues Starting Later this year?
Hello. I'm moving to Saitama next month. I'm looking for an adult league. I'm 22 years old and am very dedicated. If anyone can help me, thank you.

What part of Saitama are you moving to? I live in the Tokorozawa area, and if you're interested, click on my screen name and shoot me an email.

The team I play on is not hard-core, but our guys definitely know how to play. We try to schedule a game or practice every week on Saturday mornings, and I usually make it to about 95% of these. Our average age is in the upper 30's, and we play with the rubber ball (nankyuu). We usually face pitchers with speeds of around 100kph or so, but last week we were up against an unusual guy who threw around 140! (Why that guy was still playing amateur ball is beyond me.)

For a little more detail, read this thread: Saitama Amateur Baseball.

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.
