Just getting into Japanese baseball and want to learn who some of the top performers are? Learning Japanese and love baseball? You’ve come to the right place!

Oh, almost forgot… this site automatically updates every day there’s a new game!
Look for new data to appear around 2:30 pm EDT/3:30 am JST

See the current standings, what happened in the games today, what happened in games five and ten years ago, how your favorite player or team is doing, who the league leaders in your favorite stat are, who the league leaders are when they’re forced to play Mondays… it’s all here!

If you’ve ever seen a baseball game in Japan you’ll know that most statistics are shown in Japanese rather than the oft-used abbreviations used in the MLB. Things like WPCT, BA, and OBP are often written as 勝率, 打率, and 出塁率. Hopefully this site makes NPB more accessible to you.

What Limitations are there?

All data on this site originates from The Official NPB Website, and the site only provides so much data. Most reports contain a graphic that will show how to use the report as well as the data limitations there are in that specific report. The below is a general guide:

2005 – No data from before the 2005 season is included in these reports. Be aware that when looking at players’ lifetime stats here, if they played prior to 2005, that information is being left out.

2011 – This is specific to the Summed by Season reports. This is the date when playoffs data started being posted. If you are looking at how a team or player performed in the Climax or Nippon Series, you can only see this going back to the 2011 playoffs (though you can get some stats on these series using the corresponding Summed by Game reports).

2016 – This is the date when a LOT more details on games started being published, including complete play by plays of every game. From 2016 you can view a complete play by play of every game in Japanese and English. This data can also be used to directly compare batters to particular types of pitchers. The Summed by Plate Appearance reports contain data back to 2016.


Where are the reports? which should i use?

All reports are accessed using the Reports dropdown at the top of the page.
Many of the reports in the Season, Game, and Plate Appearance subcategories look similar and show much the same things, which level to use depends on what you’re trying to answer.

Stats Summed by Season (Reg Season 2005 – Present, Playoffs 2011 – Present)

Season Level reports are reports that only show data at the season level. You can see how a Team or Player did in 2015, or in the 2015 playoffs, but you can’t parse this down to see how they did in July of that year, or how they did at a particular stadium. These are the quickest loading reports so if you don’t care to go deeper stick to these. In addition, certain statistics are only available at this level, such as the total number of players who participated in double plays throughout the season.

Stats Summed by Game (2005 – Present)

Game Level reports allow you to view stats down to the level of an individual game. This means that you can eliminate individual games from stats depending on the criteria you specify. Do you think a particular player starts the season off strong, but then gets weaker as the season wears on? Do you want to see a team’s overall performance at a particular stadium? Is the Road of Death still a thing? All of these numbers can be crunched in these reports. Note that prior to 2016 less data was provided and you can’t always calculate things like OBP due to this missing data.

Stats Summed by Plate Appearance (2016 – Present)

The Plate Appearance reports allow us to get even closer than the level of an individual game. Rather than looking at a game as a whole, we’re able to look at individual parts of each game, such as when a particular batter is at the plate and who was on the mound at that time. Is there a player you like who crossed the pond and you want to see what happened each time he took the plate? Do you want to know who can hit to opposite field? Have you ever wanted to know what active left-handed batter (minimum 20 plate appearances!) has the best OPS against right-handed pitchers in Hanshin Koshien Stadium, Tigers excluded? You can answer all of these here. Be patient, there’s a LOT more number crunching going on in the background so it takes a bit of time for the numbers to update depending on the criteria in your search.

what else?

And that’s it! If you have any questions or you spot anything fishy do let me know. I want to make these reports both powerful, easy to use, and above all accurate! I do not work for NPB and I’m not “connecting to their systems” or anything like that. I have pieced the components NPB makes available together into something usable and visual here, but there’s always the possibility of some errors. Yes, I have gone to a lot of effort to make sure the numbers for everyone add up, but there is always the possibility that some things slipped by, so by all means reach out if you think you see something.

Enjoy and go Tigers!
