This Will Make The Highlight Reel

I've just returned from Japan, where I spent the last two weeks vacationing with family. With so many Japanese players in the major leagues now, one of the network's there does a nightly show about how they did. The Braves were never on the show as they have no Japanese players.

They will be on the next time, though, as Fukudome of the Cubs just took Bennett yard for a three-run homer in the 1st inning. That'll hurt. Granted, the Braves put a three-spot on the board in the first last night and lost 10-5.

The boys did pick up a favorite Japanese baseball team while there: the Chiba Lotte Marines. The Marines defeated the Hiroshima Carp last night 1-0 and are now on three-game winning streak. Go Marines!

Love your blog, Walt!

My brother-in-law's coming to visit, and he just sent the dates for which I'm supposed to pick up tickets here.

Maybe our family will see yours at the ballpark! :-)

We're going next weekend to watch the Braves and the Mariners. Should be good.
