CPBL: Koji Takekiyo Signs with Team Blue
Former NPB right handed pitcher Koji Takekiyo is in the Chinese Professional Baseball League with Team Blue, the minor league team that is shared by the Sinon Bulls and the China Trust Whales.

The 32 year old Takekiyo last pitched at ichi-gun in 2000 with the Chiba Lotte Marines. Expect a lot of foreign player churning as the August 31 deadline for acquiring new foreigners looms.

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.
