Card Of The Week December 14

on December 14th, 2014 by NPB Card Guy

I was thinking recently that Hall of Fame pitcher Shigeru Sugishita had only played for the Dragons during his career.  This turns out not to be the case – he spent the 1961 season (his last) with the Daimai Orions.  I was further surprised t…
