Best Nine

From BR Bullpen

The Best Nine is a post-season All-Star honor given out in Nippon Pro Baseball since 1947 and also in 1940. It is also an honor in Japanese college leagues. One player per league is voted as the best at their position, with a very rare tie (Greg LaRocca and Masahiro Araki as the top Central League 2B in 2004). Since the Pacific League instituted the DH rule, the "Best Nine" in the PL has really been a "Best 10". For yearly winners, please click on the appropriate year below.
