Hideo Nomo (野茂 英雄, Nomo Hideo, born August 31, 1968) is a retired Japanese baseball pitcher who played in Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) and Major League Baseball (MLB). He achieved early success in his native country, where he played with the Kintetsu Buffaloes from 1990 to 1994. He then exploited a loophole to free himself from his contract, and became the first Japanese major leaguer to permanently relocate to MLB in the United States, debuting with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1995. Although not the first Japanese person to play baseball professionally in the US, Nomo is often credited with opening the door for Japanese players in MLB, due to his star status.
