DESCRIPTION

WWW::Baseball::NPB provides you a way to fetch and extract Japanese baseball games information via Yahoo! Baseball. (NPB = Nippon Professional Baseball)

NOTE

TODO

  • Separate out Yahoo! Baseball parsing logic, using information provider architecture (e.g. WWW::Baseball::NPB::Provider::*)
