Opening Night of Baseball

Tuesday was the opening night of the official season. FINALLY! They pushed it back because of the earthquake and tsunami. We were so excited to go to the game and get the season started. That means we are closer to the off season, right?!! I know, I know. But it's so true! Games here in Japan are very different than in the states. First off, we don't know a word the announcers are saying for 9 innings. Crazy. Practically every person in the stadium has a pair of sticks that they hit together for EVERY BATTER for out team. They have chants for every batter also as they are banging these sticks. Interesting. In the outfield there is a band that has horns and drums that they play during our at bats also. The whole stadium is into the game. It's pretty cool. Micah is 4 for 8 with a homer so Japan baseball has been nice to him so far. We hope it continues. Here are a few pictures from opening night!


  1. Thanks for the update Tiffany! That sounds fun, if you could only understand the language. Sounds like they are true fans, not fair weather fans. LOL. I love the pictures and seeing the updates, hope you guys are enjoying every minute you can, although I know you miss your family and home, this an experience most would never even dream of. Love you guys, and hope Micah continues to have success!



  2. Addy of course looks so beautiful and ready for the BIG game. Go Micah. We are really rooting for you. Keep up the good playing. See you in the States, playing again, here. Love, Margaret and Ryne
