NPB announces 2011 slogan; 2011 Rookie Seminar

by on Feb.28, 2011 @ 5:48 pm, under NPB

The NPB announced their 2011 slogan today:

覚悟 ~なぜ、あなたはここにいるのか~

Be Prepared: Why are you here?

There's a pretty detailed explanation as to why this slogan was selected, but I don't really have the time to get into it right now.  If you're interested, and can read Japanese, you can get the rundown at the official site.


102 rookies attended the 2011 Rookie Seminar that took place in Tokyo today -- 68 players from the 70-man rosters, 29 Ikusei players, and 5 NPB umps.

2010 NPB Team Slogans

by on Jan.05, 2010 @ 7:21 pm, under NPB

I'll try to keep this post updated with 2010 slogans for each team.

(I also do realize that Tatsunori Hara mentioned that he wanted to use the same team slogan as last season, but it has not been officially posted by the Giants as of yet.)

Softbank Hawks 今年はやらんといかんばい! 1/30/2010
Yakult Swallows JUST PLAY TO WIN 1/21/2010
Yokohama Bay Stars フルシーズンフルパワー、アナライジングベースボール 1/20/2010

Seibu Lions No Limit! 2010 逆襲の獅子 1/5/2010

Not really a team slogan, but the NPB announced on 3/11 that their slogan for their Green Baseball Project was going to be LET’S省TIME! It's actually a play on words as the kanji character "省" is read sho, or show. In Japanese, the kanji character is actually from the word 省エネルギー, which means energy conservation.

The official NPB slogan was announced on 3/16 as 「ここに、世界一がある。」
