CHIBA CITY- Kazuya Fukuura played in his 1500th pro-baseball game on August 19th against the Orix Buffaloes. Congratulations! It seems fitting since Fukuura’s Pacific League debut took place against the Buffaloes on July 5, 1997. He is the 166th person to have played in 1500 games. Wow. That’s a lot of games.
(Just looked through my photos from last year. Don’t have a good one of Fukuura – it’s probably because I end up cheering and singing along to his song when he is up to bat. He has such a good song too. Gotta go to a game soon!)
