About the Site
Are you a Yakyu Baka?
Do you love baseball?
Do you crave Japanese yakyu (baseball)?
Then you just might be.
While it's difficult to provide a direct translation, there is an easy explanation: Yakyu Baka are fans that love the game of yakyu to the point where they become fools for the game.
And while this site is really nothing special, perhaps it can help fulfill some of those cravings you have for yakyu. And if not, maybe you can point us in the right direction.
