Raining outside, but nice and dry under the Tokyo Dome

June 26th, 2013, 6pm

It was 21°C with few clouds. The breeze was gentle.

I love baseball, but I rarely get out to games. Occasionally my father-in-law will invite me along. Always fun. He was a pitcher in university and it’s educational to hear his commentary from the seat next to me.

SoftBank Hawks from Fukuoka facing the Nippon-Ham Fighters from Hokkaido. The Ham-Fighters won 6-5 in ten innings. An incredible seven home runs on the day.

And yes, I prefer to call them “Ham-Fighters”. It’s a far more colorful name in my opinion.

I wonder if one could actually hit a home run swinging a ham? Now there’s a game I’d pay to see.

Cassie and Eric said thanks.
