NPB on TV Japan, May 2007
Here's the line-up of NPB games (only three, alas) broadcast in North America this month (May 2007), on cable channel TV-Japan:

May 3 (Thursday)
Dragons vs. Giants at Nagoya Dome
EST 2:15 - 4:25 pm (PST 11:15 am - 1:25 pm)

May 4 (Friday)
Marines vs. Eagles at Chiba Marine Stadium
EST 2:15 - 4:25 pm (PST 11:15 am - 1:25 pm)

May 5 (Saturday)
Giants vs. Swallows at Tokyo Dome
EST 3:05 - 5:15 pm (PST 12:05 - 2:15 pm)

To my knowledge the broadcasts are all one-day delayed, therefore shown just a few hours after completion in Japan.

Also worth watching on TV-Japan are the weekend sports round-up shows. The Sunday show in particular has a lot of baseball coverage, including highlights of MLB games featuring Japanese players:

Saturday Sports News
Saturdays, EST 12:40 - 1:10 pm (PST 9:40 - 10:10 am)

Sunday Sports News
Sundays, EST 12:05 - 1:15 pm (PST 9:05 - 10:15 am).

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.
