Opening Day

yasuhiro ogawa yakult swallows hiroshima baseball npb

Yasuhiro Ogawa (小川 泰弘) of the Yakult Swallows (Hiroshima, Japan 2013)

MLB begins today. NPB has been going for a couple weeks.

Ogawa, pictured above, is one of Japan’s finest. He is 1-1 on the young season with an ERA of 1.20. Over the past few seasons he has a combined ERA of 3.11. His rookie season, when I took today’s photo, was his best as he went 16-4 with a 2.93 ERA. Last year Yakult nearly won it all, but they are off to a rough start so far in 2016.
