Hideo Nomo Retires
By Tim Dierkes

Pitcher Hideo Nomo has retired, according to the AP (hat tip to NPB Tracker).

Nomo won 78 games in Japan in five seasons, and then exploited a loophole and retired from Japanese baseball. He was a phenomenon in '95, coming over as a free agent to win the ROY with the Dodgers as a 26 year-old. He ended up winning 123 big league games.

Thanks for the memories!

perhaps Chan Ho Park has a shot at finishing his career with the most wins by any asian player...currently sits at 117 wins
