Foreign Players in the NPB Pacific League

Myworld took a look at the rosters to identify some of the foreign players in the Pacific League.  Japan can have four foreign players on their rosters, but no more than three can be position players or pitchers.  Some teams carry more than four foreign players, but the extras are carried on their nigun rosters, which is equivalent to the minor leagues.
