      There are five listed on this page: http://www.japanbaseballdaily.com/homerfeatscycle.html You have to scroll down a bit to find it. The last listed is in 2003.

        The first ever to hit homers from both sides of the plate in one game was also the last batting champion in the first stage (1956-1967) of the Nicaraguan Pro League, Richie Scheinblum.

          Interesting article on Otani and the rule intended to keep Japanese players from signing with the majors before NPB is here: http://www.japanball.com/news.phtml?id=23607

            Wow, a lot of info in here! Thanks! So is the site japanbaseballdaily.com the place to go to get all the career/season stats of the former MLB guys that played there? I saw an earlier post from 6 years ago asking about Reggie Smith, etc, and was just wondering if that is still the place to go to see their stats? Just in case another site has popped up since then with more on it.

            Back in the early 1990s I heard that guys like Randy Bass and Larry Parrish were big HR champs over in Japan, was that true? I can't wait to be able to look up their stats and see just how good some of our former players did over there!

            Thanks again for putting all this together! Years ago I tried using Google to look up the NPB and never really found what I wanted.

              I was just looking at the stats leaderboard from the 2012 season and it seems as it is certainly a pitcher's era right now in Japan. A lot of guys with sub 2 ERAs, and very few guys hitting over .300.

                I was just futzing around on the Internet and inadvertently came across this website devoted to photos of Negro and Nippon League players. The Jananese players seem to start on the 21st page, which is where the link takes you.

                  Japanese baseball data has come in a very big way to Baseball Reference.com: http://www.baseball-reference.com/japan/

                  This has more current data than the Japanese Baseball warehouse, though not the notes on retired players.

                    • This is the most amazing long marathon game ever played. According to the mathematical analysis in my book Baseball' Longest Games, a 50-inning game only occurs once in 2.5 Billion games.

                      LONGEST BY INNINGS

                      LONGEST GAMES LASTING 20 INNINGS OR MORE BY INNINGS (828) – 212 won by home, 246 by visitor, 118 ties, 252 unknown or neutral site

                      51 OR MORE INNINGS (0)

                      No game, thus far, has been identified as having gone 51 or more innings.

                      50 INNINGS (1) – 0 won by home, 0 by visitor, 0 ties, 1 by unknown or neutral site

                      50 innings –---- Akashi Tocalo Stadium, Akashi, Japan – 8/28/2014 and 8/29/2014 and 8/30/2014 and 8/31/2014 – Nan-Shiki High School Tournament Semi-Final – Chukyo 3 Sotoku 0 in 10:18; suspended on August 28 at 12:51 PM after 15 innings and 2:52; suspended for a second time on August 29 at 2:24 PM after 30 innings and 6:16; suspended for a third time on August 30 at 2:04 PM after 45 innings and 9:18 – finished at 10:02 AM on August 31 after 50 innings and 10:18 – Chukyo pitcher Taiga Matsui went the distance pitching all 50 innings, facing 179 batters and throwing 709 pitches; Sotoku pitcher Jukiya Ishioka also went the distance pitching all 50 innings, facing 184 batters and throwing 689 pitches – in the Tournament Final later on August 31 Chukyo 2 Miura Gakuen 0 – Chukyo pitcher Taiga Matsui came on in relief in the 4 th inning, and completed the game, pitching 5 2/3 innings and throwing another 77 pitches, for a total of 786 pitches for the two games – everything about this game is record-breaking – attendance unknown.
