Hideo Nomo

​February 13, 1995 – The Dodgers signed free agent pitcher Hideo
, a former star with the Kintetsu Buffaloes. Nomo will become the
first player from a Japanese professional league to appear in the Majors since
San Francisco’s Masanori Murakami of the 1964-65 San Francisco
Giants. En route to winning N.L. Rookie of the Year honors in 1995, Nomo’s
success will pave the way for other Japanese stars to play in the Majors.
