Hideki “Fat Toad” Irabu finds a home in the GBL

by on Apr.27, 2009 @ 2:47 am, under Other

Hideki Irabu has apparently found a home with the Long Beach Armada of the Golden Baseball League.

The question now is, can he still be effective, at age 39?

As I mentioned in a previous post, his last two seasons in Japan weren't overly great, but respectable. Here are a few more stats from those 2 seasons:

K/9 8.3
BB/9 2.5
WHIP 1.42
Opp BA .298

Irabu also gave up 29 home runs in 30 starts.

The Golden League Baseball season is set to start on May 21st.
