Yoshifumi Okada: Did You Know

Milestones

2018

October 8 vs Softbank at ZOZO Marine – Okada went hitless in his fifty-ninth straight plate appearance and tied an NPB record for position players. The previous record of fifty-eight was set by Teruhide Sakurai between 1977 and 1978 (for all players, including pitchers, the streak of ninety was set by Kenshiro Saga between 1954 and 1955). Okada’s streak began in October 2016. He ended the streak with a hit to left in the fifth inning (off Nao Higashihama).

Okada set the record and broke the streak during his retirement game. He finished his career with zero home runs over 2,501 trips to the plate.
