NPB Bullet Points: A Few Articles I Read
Every article linked here is written in English:
- Writing for One World Sports, John Gibson urges observers to be patient with phenom Shohei Ohtani.
- Steve Novosel and Craig Roberts wrote up Lotte’s May 2-4 series with Seibu, which included Takayuki Kishi’s no-hitter.
- Wily Mo Pena hit a home run off the roof of Kyocera Osaka Dome on May 6, which I had never seen anyone do before. Gen Sueyoshi has details and a video clip.
- Jason Coskrey writes that the upstart Orix Buffaloes performance at the gate is lagging behind their performance in the win column.
- John Sickels looks back at the career of Chad Tracy, who spent a season in Japan with the Hiroshima Carp. Tracy recently retired.
As a bonus I’ll throw in this highlight of Yuki Nishi spearing a hard line drive that was on a course for his head.
