Thank you and Happy New Year

I wanted to take a quick moment to thank everyone that made YakyuDB one of their destinations in 2016. There is a lot of room for improvement and I hope I can count on all of you to help me make this site even better in 2017. If you have any suggestions or ideas, please feel free to let me know in the comments section below, or in an e-mail (gen at yakyudb dot com). You can also use the forums.

From me to you, I wish you and your loved ones the very best in 2017.

[8/29/2016] 2017 World Baseball Classic Survey (UPDATE 9/12 @ 2:04am)

I have been asked to do a little research on the 2017 World Baseball Classic. Information I gather could be used in a article that will be published in the next issue of Baseball Times. Those of you that have watched any of YakyuDB’s streams should be familiar with the name. They are a legitimate baseball publication in Japan.

[8/19/2016] Koshien Stats: Pitch Velocity Ranges

I have added Pitch Velocity Ranges for all pitchers that have pitched in the tournament. They (and the pitch breakdowns) are as accurate as Yahoo lists them. Take a look at Sakushin Gakuin’s Tatsuya Imai.

[8/16/2016] Koshien Stats: pitch breakdown pie charts

Koshien Stats was updated with stats through to the end of August 15.

Also, I added pitch breakdown pie charts for players that have pitched during the tournament. Yokohama’s Shoma Fujihira is a good example.

[8/14/2016] 98th Summer Koshien: delay with today’s box scores

Just wanted to let everyone know that today’s box scores will be going up a lot later than expected. I am currently in the middle of something that directly relates to the way they are posted. Hopefully it will be an improvement, instead of step back.

[UPDATE 8/15 @ 4:37am]

Koshien Stats for the 98th Summer Koshien is now online. It does not currently include pitch data, but I am planning to add it in. There are bound to be bugs, so if you spot any, please let me know. Also, the new Koshien Stats section is somewhat self-contained in that it also includes the box scores. I’ll still post updates as usual so people will know where to go.

[8/1/2016] Next Live Stream: August 4 (Koshien)

This is just a reminder: for those that missed my update in the Community section, the next live stream will take place on August 4 at 4:00pm Japan time. I think that works out to 12:00am August 4 Pacific Standard time and 3:00am August 4 Eastern Standard time.

The times are a bit wonky because the next live stream will be done during the Summer Koshien bracket selections. If you can’t make it because the stream is too late, don’t worry, an archive will be available at YouTube as usual.

Problems with registration

A number of users have attempted to create user accounts and most likely came across some errors during the sign-up process. I have since fixed the problems and a back-log of e-mails were just now sent out. Some of the links in the older e-mails may not work. If so, simply visit YakyuDB as you normally do and use the login button in the top menu area.

If you are still having problems with your account, please drop me an e-mail at info at yakyudb.com.

My apologies for the inconvenience.
