1956 Nankai games-by-position errors
Both BR Japan ( and Michael Westbay's database ( have incorrect stats for Nankai's players defensively, with way too many games at 1B and not nearly enough at 2B. Does anyone have correct stats?

The 120 games at first base by Isami Okamoto belong at second base. (According to page 574 of "The Official Baseball Encyclopedia 2004.") Looks like a data entry miss in the wrong column.

Also, I'd love to claim credit for that database on Google Sites, but it's not mine. My guess would be that it's from the Japan Baseball Daily Data Warehouse.

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.
