About Fumio Fujimura

Fumio Fujimura (藤村 富美男, Fujimura Fumio, August 14, 1916 – May 28, 1992) was a Japanese baseball infielder and pitcher who played 22 seasons in Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) from 1936 to 1958. He began his career as a stellar right-handed pitcher for the Osaka Tigers, but achieved his greatest fame as a hitter. A superstitious player, Fujimura never hurt insects or shaved before games. Also hot-tempered, he was once suspended for physically abusing an umpire. In 1950, Fujimura set the single-season record with 191 base hits. This record remained unbroken for 44 years, until Ichiro Suzuki surpassed it in 1994. Fujimura was inducted to the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974. His number 10 has been retired by the Hanshin Tigers.
