Baseball in Japan: Yokohama DeNA BayStars
I have to say that while Amanda and I had an awesome time at the game, there was some college-age guy here who was sitting near me, and deliberately raised his hand to get in my photos multiple times. No. Really. I have about 20 pictures with his hand shot up into my photo. Not cool, dude. Though that reminds me of something that happened at the Swallows game I posted on yesterday: there were some Americans in attendance sitting in the same general section as me, and they started heckling the right fielders. Japanese fans do not heckle. And if you're an American visiting a Japanese stadium, you shouldn't heckle too. It just seems out of place here. It's fun when watching MLB games, hearing a group of guys mocking Barry Bonds or Bobby Abreu for striking out or making an error. But when it's just a couple stupid gaijin doing it, I feel embarassed.
I'll be making a return trip to Yokohama Stadium next season, and I'm going to sit in the main concourse to get more photos and check out some of the stuff I missed the first time around. So stay tuned for that! Meanwhile, I went to one more baseball game this year, and I'll report on that next!
