2011 You've heard of teams signing Japanese free agents, but Japanese non-drafted free agents? Hirotoshi Onaka is a short, speedy center fielder who hit .327 with five home runs in a 75-game at International Pacific University but didn't get called to the pros. "Senren sa reta daigaku no dasha" is, roughly speaking, Japanse for "polished college hitter." We'll see if Onaka is one of those.
