Yu Darvish museum opened today in Japan

By Richard Durrett

Perhaps it was fitting that the Space 11 Darvish Museum opened to the public at 11:11 a.m. on Monday (Nov. 11) in Kobe, Japan, where the Rangers' ace spent his childhood. Yu Darvish's uniform number, after all, is 11.

The museum houses about 100 items of memorabilia from Darvish's career. According to The Japan Times story, that also includes the glove and uniform from a no-hitter that Darvish threw in 2004.

Darvish returns to Arlington in about a week so the Rangers can check on his health. General manager Jon Daniels said last week that the reports on Darvish are good and that he hasn't needed any more injections to deal with a nerve issue.
