That is indeed so cool. Good luck to her!

Very cool. Last time I was in Japan, I saw advertising for a women's baseball league. We have them in the States as well. There used to be one I was affiliated with in NYC, but it folded.

At any rate, this is an awesome story, and I wish Yoshida the best of luck in her endeavors.

Yeah, she's the shit. Hope she's a success here too.

I saw some too. Two teams and around 30 games to start.
Hopefully they'll draw enough to at least double next season.

Did you know Japan has a league for former pros, too? It's called the Masters League.
Very short season, but a cool way to see players from one's youth (and depending on your age, players you weren't born early enough to see in action), even if only a shadow of their heyday.

But i digress, this is about remarkable Eri-chan. May she leave many a batter frustrated, and swat some line drives of her own.

[4] When I was there last October, I did manage to stumble upon what I thought to be an old timer's game. That may have been the Masters League.

Where was the elders' game?
