Will Larry Parrish outshine Bob Horner, whose impact on Japanese baseball showed up in a 24 percent increase in his team's attendance? Parrish, 35, who played for the Boston Red Sox last season, batted .327 and hit seven home runs in 20 exhibition games for the Yakult Swallows, but matching Horner's debut won't be easy. Horner, who also played for the Central League's Swallows, hit one homer in his first game in Japan and three in three at-bats the next day. He batted .327 with 31 homers and 73 runs batted in during his one season in Japan, in 1987.
