Play Ball!


My ears are still ringing from the clamor of last night’s Japanese baseball game! While the game itself is similar to American baseball, the atmosphere is as charged as a college football game. The cheering NEVER stops. Crowds cheer wildly and loudly during their team’s entire turn at bat. When the opponents are up, their fans cheer. Fans whack these small hollow bats together, creating a thunderous cacophony. Those mini bats inevitably result in a headache for the uninitiated — but isn’t that what beer (and sake) are for!
