Nomura with Nankai

Discussion in the Pro Yakyu History forum
Nomura with Nankai
Here in Baltimore, the arrival of Kris Benson and his - colorful - wife got us talking about athletes with outspoken or controversial wives. Naturally, I brought up Katsuya Nomura and his wife. While I was reasonably well acquainted with her more recent antics (the tax evasion arrest that led to his "resignation" from Hanshin), I don't know much about how she caused him to lose his job with Nankai in the 1970s. The only thing I could find surveying the usual English language sources on the web was that she was "interfering" with him running the team. Does anyone have any more information?

Thanks in advance.

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.
