I’m trying to get ‘Japanese Baseball’ knowledge in my head before I travel there in Sept.
- Japanese Baseball has two leagues: Central League and Pacific League (similar to National and American – I would assume)
- Each league has six teams
- The Yomiuri Giants (in Tokyo –Tokyo Dome) seem to be the all time leader in Japanese series wins, but I am not yet able to find stats (in English) to support that statement
- Teams reside all over Japan - from the north to the south of Japan as indicated in the map below.
