Boston.com to share content with Japanese sports Web site

Boston.com, the Web site of The Boston Globe, has signed a content-sharing agreement with an established Japanese language baseball site.
Under the agreement announced Thursday, excerpts of baseball coverage in the newspaper, on Boston.com and on the Boston Dirt Dogs fan site will be translated into Japanese and posted on Go-RedSox.com. The site has been operated for the past three years by Daigo Fujiwara, a Japanese sports journalist and graphics designer at the Globe. Fujiwara also operates a site on Japanese players in Major League Baseball.
The deal follows the dramatic rise in interest in the Red Sox within Japan following the signing earlier this month of the Japanese pitching star Daisuke Matsuzaka. Reliever Hideki Okajima also joined the team's roster this offseason.
The Globe also said sports columnist Gordon Edes will write twice a month for Japan's leading sports publication, the Sankei Daily Sports.
The Globe and Boston.com are owned by The New York Times Co., which also is a part owner of the Red Sox.
