Today’s Interleague Games

» 13 June 2009 » In npb »

I’m watching Hiroshima vs Seibu on the NPB Live page if anyone wants to join me. When I turned on the game, it struck me that Hiroshima and Seibu played each other in the 1986 Japan Series. Then I realized that yesterday I watched Hanshin vs Lotte, and they played in the 2005 Japan Series. And it turns out that we’ve seen all of today’s interleague matchups except one in previous Japan Series’.

  • Seibu vs Hiroshima, 1986
  • Hanshin vs Lotte, 2005
  • Nippon Ham vs Chunichi, 2006 & 2007
  • Orix vs Yakult, 2001 (Yakult vs Kintetsu) & 1995 (Yakult vs Orix)
  • Yomiuri vs SoftBank, 2000 (when the Hawks were still owned by Daiei)
  • Yokohama vs Rakuten… I think it will be a while before we see this one
