2009 Tokyo Yakult Swallows Schedule

NPB has released the 2009 schedules for all of its teams, as most readers of this site probably know. What that means for us here at the Tsubamegun is that our “Game Results” page will be changed to show 2009 (makes sense, right?), but we’ll hold off on that until after the New Year.

We’ve already moved the 2008 Swallows Game-by-Game Results to our “Stats, History, & More” section; complete 2008 standings, postseason results, and 2008 Asia Series results are also available there.

The 2009 season will begin just a bit later than the 2008 season and, thankfully, there won’t be a huge gap between the start of the Pacific League and Central League seasons.

Without further ado, here’s the 2009 Schedule for the Tokyo Yakult Swallows.

  • Rob

    How nice – all the home games for interleague will be at Jingu. I think the TYS home games with Seibu were off in the sticks in 2008, which seemed… wrong.
    Thanks for keeping the site going, guys!

  • Right, Tokyo played Seibu at the Seibu Dome after having our “home” series against them in Ibaraki (Iwaki and Hitachinaka.) Those tours work, though (at least anecdotally.) The wife of our unofficial photographer is from up that way and is a Swallows fan to this day solely because the team toured near her hometown when she was growing up. Swallows fans really outnumbered Dragons fans at our “home” series at Botchan Stadium in Matsuyama back in August.

    I dislike missing the games that are too far away, but I’m glad the team is doing something to help build a fan base.

    Thanks for reading and commenting, Rob. We’ll keep this site going until we’re physically incapable of it, at which point we’ll wheedle someone else in picking it up.
