They are college players selected from only two prefectures (Kyoto and Shiga). The 5th World University Baseball Championship will be held in Japan at the end of July. So that's where all the focus goes. Expect Japan to finish last in Haarlem.

Thank you for the info.
Too bad that they did not send a better team, Cuba is there with a very good team so will probably win it.
The WUBC is definitely something to look forward to.

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.
