Takeshi Yamasaki knocked out his 20th homer of the season last night.  That makes him just the 3rd player in NPB history to record 20 home runs at 42 years or older.

The other two players: Hiromitsu Ochiai (21 HR in 1996 at 42) and Hiromitsu Kadota (31 HR in 1990 at 42).

Yamasaki also took over sole possession of 18th place on the All-time list with 383 career round trippers.
