[5/17/2016] Nagisa Arakaki records 100th wild pitch

Nagisa Arakaki recorded his 100th career wild pitch during a game against Hiroshima at Mazda Stadium earlier today and became just the third player in NPB history to reach the milestone. The wild pitch came in the fourth inning with Brad Eldred up to bat.

Pitchers with 100 or more wild pitches:

  • Choji Murata – 148
  • Kazuhisa Ishii – 115
  • Nagisa Arakaki – 100

Incidentally, Arakaki also holds the Pacific League record for most wild pitches in a game (five set in 2008) and tied the Central League record (four) in 2014.
