August 26th - Deja vu at the Dome ( Tiger Tails ) It had to happen again. Wada's stubborn and insistent practice of substituting his catcher and bringing on the inferior replacement ("because he works well with the closer") blew up in his face yet again. We had Tigers pushing and pressurizing Giants well. Messenger pitching well and Sugiuchi faltering. In the third Gomez put Tigers in the lead with a solo home run. Messenger held the lead. Then next innings Tigers added two more runs - a solo from Ryota Arai and a timely single from the bat of Yamato after Uemoto had successfully stolen second. Note - no stupid bunt and waste of an out here.

August 28th Despair at the Dome ( Tiger Tails ) Tigers return to Koshien with a truly terrible performance to mark the last game of shi no rodo. Still their shi no rodo record was actually 11-10. This has to be regarded as positive. Unfortunately it means that Tigers stupid management probably want Wada back next season (and their have been rumblings in that direction). One understands the reasoning (which is feeble) that he has managed two second place finishes but both times he has had championship winning teams which his lack of ability has actually failed to take to a championship. There is still time this season though but on the strength of last nights performance it is unlikely.

I for one was happy so many powerhouses were left out of Koushien this year. If I had my way, Komatsu Ootani and Sekine Gakuen would have been here instead of Seiryou and Nihon Bunri respectively.

The Swallows swept the BayStars down in muggy Matsuyama. A rare treat at the Birds’ home away from home. Much high-fiving in the Tsubamegun.

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.
