Three games into Andy's Japanese Baseball Career

So far, so good for Andy Phillips. He went 0 for 4 yesterday, but was 2 for 4 with a double today. At least judging from the stats posted here.

"Carpfan" posted this cool link. It appears to be a URL where you can watch streaming video of Yomiuri Giants baseball games. (That would be Hideki Matsui's former team.) I assume it's live, which means late at night or early in the morning for us Yanks. The Carp play the Giants again in early August; if I can, I'll check it out then.

This site has some good information about Japanese baseball for English speakers. Andy's page is here. Still not much on it; they are asking for help filling out his biography. And here is the Carp schedule for the year.

They also have information for players who want to play in Japan.

Giants Stream is not live. It's usually a few hours behind and It is alive until the next game. So you have to know when the Carp play the Giants. You can find live Carp stream on if you are lucky. But probably the most useful thing for you would be archive footage. That, the Carp don't have one yet.

I couldn't get it to work. I tried with IE and Firefox, and downloading the latest Flash player, and still couldn't get it to run. So perhaps they block non-Japanese IPs.

I'll have to try it with Japanese proxy, I guess.

As infimum said, Giants Stream is not live.
It is alive for a month from the game. So, if technically block isn't exist, you can watch June 30's game by July 30.
I hope you enjoy watching the Andy's play.
Good luck!
