1,000 NPB Player Pages at the BR Bullpen
The Baseball-Reference Bullpen now has pages for over 1,000 players who appeared in Nippon Pro Baseball - about half are stubs or incomplete, but about half are fairly comprehensive.

The newest entries show the range - a minor player in Shinji Udaka, a Hall-of-Famer in Katsuo Osugi, and an All-Star in Seiji Sekiguchi.

We still have a long way to go, but I think we're making impressive strides, considering the Bullpen is less than two years old.

I also have to congratulate the hard work of everyone over at Baseball-Reference with all the extensive BR Bullpen entries on players in NPB. I've worked on some of them over there from all-star players to very obscure, often forgotten players such as Tomio Hirooka. It is indeed a very impressive stride considering how young the BR Bullpen is.

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.
