Year Three Is In The Books

» 28 June 2011 » In NPB Tracker »

It’s hard to believe, but NPB Tracker has been online for over three years now. June 15 was the official date, but I was busy last week.

Ever year has it’s highlights, and this year was no different. I’m probably forgetting a few things but these are the ones that jump out:

  • Coming darn close to actually seeing a game with Deanna and Westbaystars-san. We got as far as the box office at Tokyo Dome, but the BayStars-Giants game was sold out, so instead we had dinner at Hichiori Morimoto’s parents’ restaurant, Yakiniku Erika.
  • The awesome surprise of walking into Borders one day and seeing my article on the cover of Rotowire’s annual Fantasy Guide. Getting to finally meet Peter Schoenke after having worked with Rotowire for the last couple years was fun as well.
  • Getting together with all the guys from FanGraphs in Arizona during spring again.
  • Adding Ken and Adam to the NPB Tracker family.

I’d also like to say thanks to all the readers and commenters for making this thing fun.

    I would like to thank the readers as well and thank you for having me, Patrick. I hope I can deliver informative and entertaining material in the manner that you have for three years.

    On a personal note, at least one of us got to see a game with Deanna ( and Westbay-san (, though I missed Yakuniku Erika. It was one of the highlights of my visit to Japan, and their spirit for Japanese baseball is infectious. Thanks, guys!
