Masa Yamamoto's 200th Win!

Masa Yamamoto's 200th Win!
The Dragons beat the Giants tonight (August 4, 2008) 5-1 and Masa Yamamoto pitched a complete game, striking out 7. This was his 200th win, making him the 24th pitcher in NPB history to do so (the 23rd was Kimiyasu Kudoh, another old lefty, in 2004).

I personally was betting on him achieving this before August 11 -- his 43rd birthday. This is great for him!

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.
