Japanese Baseball Fielding Data

Cameron Fairchild writes:

Can you point me to some place or publication (in English) where I can find fielding stats for past seasons of Japanese baseball? I have found tons of batting stats but almost nothing for fielding.

has defensive games, putouts, assists, errors and

passed balls for the following:

plus the following teams in the assorted champion

teams folder:

1950 Orions and Robins, 1951 and 1953 Giants and Hawks

This is all the data I know of in English. If you

want more, I suggest contacting Michael Westbay at in the Ask the Commish forum and

see what he can do for you. Unfortunately, the

defensive data is apparently not easy to come by even

if one reads Japanese, and few people who can do so

have taken the time to do the translations and make

them available in English.
