First baseball game!

On Wednesday last week I had the pleasure of watching my very first live baseball game. Baseball is huge in Japan, probably
bigger here than in the USA. The school baseball team takes it very seriously and they are practicing everyday day, even in the holidays. So at 9am i wandered out to the baseball field and found a seat right behind the catcher, a perfect view to cheer my boys on (I haven't actually meet most of them yet but i now call them 'our team'). Unfortunately the lost 8-4 to a rival team but it was a lot of fun. Next step is to get on the field and have a swing!
