Tomoaki Kanemoto took over sole possession of seventh place on the All-time list with his 410th double on Friday night in a game against the Chunichi Dragons.  He's also just 8 doubles away from a 6th place tie with Shigeo Nagashima.

Michihiro Ogasawara became the 29th player in NPB history to hit 350 doubles in his career last night.  He also became the 5th quickest player to reach the milestone (1,673 games).  At 1,595 games, Kazuhiro Yamauchi was the quickest player in NPB history to 350 doubles.
