After reading this, one wonders when the Tuffy Rhodes museum is going to be built in the United States …

Texas Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish is only 26 years old, but he apparently has accomplished enough in that short time to be immortalized in his homeland of Japan. According to Japanese media reports, planning is underway for a Darvish museum in the Hyogo prefecture, in the southern part of the country. The tentative plan calls for a November opening.

Or maybe Warren Cromartie.

Still, for it to beat Ichiro’s museum, it will have to be run by Darvish’s mom.

    Kyogo prefecture’s wikipedia page is hilarious. The other athletes of note: Some guy who invented Judo in the 1800’s, and So Taguchi. So maybe the museum is appropriate.

    Just added to my “things to do”:

    Go to Japan, see the Ichiro museum, attempt to meet Ichiro’s mom
