    NHK World broadcast this game and I was able to watch it in itys entirety in the Phjilippines. I never knew the reason why Kuroda returned to Japanese baseball but it was a very exciting game that I saw. This is the first Japanese baseball game I watched that went into extra innings.

    My question is – with ties being considered in Japanese baseball – what are the rules when it will be called a tie? Is there a maximum number of innings?

    1. Gen Post author

      Based on reports I’ve read, Kuroda was moved by the Hiroshima front office and decided to return. I think he also really wanted to end his career in Hiroshima after all the support he received from the fans. He probably figured he was running out of time and didn’t want to return after he was out of gas.

      NPB Games will end in a tie after twelve full innings.

    2. Ren

      There was also a topic about this in NBC’s hardballtalk. The Yankees did not make a qualifying offer to Kuroda, thus making him a free agent in the Major Leagues. The San Diego Padres though, did show some interest in him last year and offered him a contract worth around somewhere in the 18 million dollar mark, but backed down eventually (no reason was stated on why, though). And like as Gen said, Kuroda wanted to finish his Baseball career with Hiroshima, which was certainly awesome for him to do.

      And yes, the NPB ( and also the KBO) league usually ends in tie games if both teams were still tied heading into the 12th.

      (And I am from the Philippines too man and a Filipino, always nice to see someone here in our country who loves Asian Baseball, especially Japanese Baseball.)

    Ren,

    I have been watching baseball games at the old Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium during the 1970’s. Ask your father if he remembers Canlubang and Mohawk. Of course I was there when UP and FEU were batting for the UAAP championships.

    Do you have a favorite NPB team? I don’t have any in particular but I was watching Ichiro with Orix and Matsui with Yomiuri when Skycable had BS 1 (or NHK International)in the middle 90s. It is always a treat for me whenever there is a scheduled NPB game in NHK World. Next week I will be watching the scheduled game at my mother’s home in Quezon City.

      They show baseball on NHK World!? When? I have been watching that channel for years, and not once have I ever watched a baseball game. How unlucky can I get? That’s why I resort to online streaming. T___T

    2. Ren

      I’m really not from the NCR region area though, nor from Luzon. I’m actually from Davao city. But, we once visited Rizal memorial stadium in 2008 when we spent a week and a half in Manila during our family vacation.

      I’m a Rakuten Eagles fan by the way, and I started watching the team back in 2009 when I was still 13 (I can only watch some of the team’s games via youtube or net streaming during those times cause we don’t have an NHK channel). I’m also a huge supporter of Masahiro Tanaka during his time with the Eagles, and is still a supporter even with him now in a Yankees uniform.

      (I’m a Braves fan when it comes to the MLB and really not a fond of the Yankees, but I’ll always watch and root for Tanaka in his starts.)
