RIP Joaquin Andujar

The picture below was posted by Robinson Cano on his Instagram account today. My Spanish is only ok, but I’ll attempt to translate (any native speakers, please correct me if I’m wrong): [Andujar’s loss is] a great sadness for all fans of baseball, especially Dominicans.

Because of the circumstances, very few of these cards ever went into circulation.

Alex Ramirez, Two-Time Japan Central League MVP

This post from November, 2011 on the topic of Len Durrant’s Japanese League Hall of Famers and Heroes set compatible with Strat-O-Matic Baseball continues to be one of the most popular items ever posted to this blog. Though Durrant has long since abandoned the MyOpera site that used to keep so many of his great contributions to the hobby, the Japanese HoF/Heroes cards can still be found circulating among gamers [email me at paul@oneforfive.com if you need to be pointed in the right direction].
