  • Skills - The character's baseball or other skills. When he/she has a special skill, use different section headings (for example: ===Pitches===).
  • Player Statistics – Use the data from the official guidebook only! Do not mess around with this data. It’ll stay the same as long as no another official data is released!

  • Trivia - Trivia items. Organized in a bulleted list. Speculations, fan material or shallow comparison to other series do not belong here!
  • Quotes - The quotes section. List memorable quotes in a bulleted list, always referenced. Not too many quotes are preferred, think of memorable speeches or a call-out by the character that identifies him or her well. Divide the quote section into quotes from the character and quotes about the character with a horizontal line,
  • Gallery – Outstanding images of the character (anime or manga) in good quality only (Note: quality before quantity)! Fan-arts do not belong here! If there are more than six images a sildeshow should be used. Not too many images are preferred - if there are more than 20 images in the gallery, they will be deleted.
  • References - Just the ==References== section with a <references/> tag below it. To collect the <ref></ref> tag info in the page. If the page does not have any references, add them.

    • You should only use references from original works and/or official translations.
    • References to the manga are highly preferred.
  • Navigation - if available
