Turning Japanese

“I got more hits than Sadaharu Oh” – “Hey Ladies” by The Beastie Boys

Japanese baseball legend Sadaharu Oh ended his career with 868 homers and 2,786 hits. Sadly, the Beastie Boys never had 2,786 hits.

While researching Japanese baseball card design last night (I’m a nerd…I know), I decided to make these two cards. One is for Oh, of course, and features a shot of him as he broke the all-time home run record.

The second card is for Kosuke Tanaka of the Hiroshima Carp. The Carp share the same “C” logo and colors as the Cincinnati Reds, so it fits with this blog’s “alternate Reds” theme.
