Only trouble with them is that they won't boo the umpires."

Bios of Nippon League Ballplayers

ATL Logo
A small attempt to bring a sense of familiarity to the names and stat lines we see in the All Time League. The links below lead to a list of batter and pitchers in alphabetical order. Not all the players in the Nippon All Time Set have a bio yet, but eventually they will. Also, when time permits I hope to gussy it up a bit more with better formatting and a picture for every player. Perhaps even career stats . . . in any case, all of these bios will be updated as I uncover more interesting tidbits about each player.
