Residing in the U.S. as of present, I was wondering if there were any ways
to possibly receive an internet broadcast live (like they have in the the
U.S. sometimes) of Japanese games, or perhaps a better way to "watch" the
game other than clicking RELOAD every five minutes on a boxscore.
If you can read some Japanese characters, you can try this site
during the season. There are pitch-by-pitch updates and each pitch is
identified by type and speed. Sometimes it's hard to figure out what happens
on a more unusual play (like one with an error), but most of the time it
works fine. Last season, there weren't live feed available from every
stadium and I don't think "countryside" games are covered.
If you're in the States and you don't want to stay up in to the wee hours of
the morning, there is a replay function. I used that for the Japan Series.
