Eri Yoshida--Tonight!

Tonight Eri Yoshida makes her debut on the mound for the Yuma Scorpions in the Arizona Winter League. She made headlines last year as the first woman to pitch in a professional league in Japan, and she is set to make history again tonight at 6pm Mountain Time. Yuma manager, former Dodger, Nippon Ham Fighter and Belinda Carlisle boy-toy, Mike Marshall, is the perfect person to ensure that she will continue to impress. Marshall, the 369th foreigner to play in the Japanese Big Leagues after the war, is part of a long line of former major leaguers to make their way to Japan- see where it all began in the next post, as the American's arrive in 1950's Japanese baseball!
