CPBL: New Signings
The China Trust Whales have signed 31 year old third baseman Brian Becker. In 2005 the right handed hitter batted .299 with a whopping 41 home runs and 110 RBIs in 123 games for the Nashua Pride of the independent Atlantic League before being signed by the Chicago White Sox organization.

In other transactions, the Makoto Cobras have added 29 year old right handed pitcher James Lira. Last season Lira was 5-1 with a 2.49 ERA in 34 games for the Coastal Bend Aviators of the independent Central Baseball League.

For the Brother Elephants, Joey Dawley, Hayato Nakamura, and Chuck Smith will make up their starting rotation.

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.
