Identifying Autographs

Discussion in the Open Talk forum
Identifying Autographs
I got an e-mail from Eric asking about the autographs on a baseball he has. Can anyone identify the team that signed this ball?

The signatures are all pretty legible, so I'm guessing that it was a high school or college team. Then #12 Fukuyama Ryutaro stands out, so that narrows it down to Fukuoka Prefectural Tochiku High School in the first half of the 1990s or Hosei University in the later half 1990s.

I'll cross reference some of the other names when I have some time later. Any help from others in the mean time is welcome.


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.
