    Sadaharu Oh and Hank Aaron

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 January 10日 Thursday

    Japan’s homerun king Sadaharu Oh’s milestone homeruns on YouTube. The early Japanese camera angles make it difficult to see his funky stance and step in the batter’s box until near the end of the clip when we reach more modern times.

    Oh vs Hammerin’ Hank homerun derby highlights. Aaron won it 4-2, Hank makes ’em look easier. Oh translates to a 500+ HR hitter in the majors when taking league competition and park effects into account. A Hall of Fame calibre career in any league.
