Lotte Orions in Sendai and Kawasaki
Can anyone tell me what years the Lotte Orions played in Sendai and Kawasaki? I think Sendai was 1973 to 1977 or 1974-77, but I am not sure.

It was not in 1973. I played there and our stadium was Tokyo Stadium.

Mr. Lopez,

I am working with Wally Yonamine on his biography. I would like an interview if possible. Could you please contact me off list?

Thank you.

In 1973, their official franchise was in Tokyo, but no game there. Their semi-franchise was in Sendai, and they played there. In 1974, they moved to there officially.

Their official franchise in Kawasaki was 1978 to 1991.

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.
