Bad News

Just discovered today that Gary Garland will be shutting down the Japan Baseball Daily website.  Thankfully, he's not shutting it down immediately - he's going to stop updating it following this season and take it off line at the end of the 2013 season.

Japan Baseball Daily has been an invaluable resource to me and many others and it will be a sad day when it goes dark.  If I haven't said it publicly before (and even if I have) thank you, Gary, for all the work you've done on your site.  Both you and it will be sorely missed.

I wonder if it would be possible for some place like Baseball-Reference to import Gary's data.  It would really be a shame for it all to go away.
