Yakyu links from the English side of the ‘net for tonight:
- Dan at mykbo.net interviewed former Lotte Giants manager (and former White Sox player) Jerry Royster about his time in Korea.
- Andrew Baggerly of the San Jose Mercury News writes about Marc Kroon’s first save opportunity of the spring with his new Giants.
- Our friend Deanna writes about her experience meeting the recently departed Wally Yonamine. I confess I have yet to read Rob Fitts’ book on him.
- The prolific Gen produces so much content at Yakyubaka.com it’s hard to choose an article to link to. I settled on two: a chart of Yu Darvish’s pitches in his most recent spring appearance, and Senichi Hoshino’s idea of quieting Rakuten’s ouen-dan for a game this season.
- This isn’t explicitly NPB related, but MLB is sending a contingent of coaches and former players to Brazil for an instructional camp. I would love to see baseball become more popular in Brazil.
