First, we would like to introduce you to Indy Ball Island – Japan. This site will be geared towards players in Japan (and those who speak/read Japanese) who want to learn more about independent baseball, both in Japan and here in the United States. Over the last year, this site has gained a following in Japan, but it was often difficult for players to translate what was happening. This site will feature translated articles from Indy Ball Island as well as other Japanese baseball news.
