Tsubamegun Opinion Poll: April 27th, 2012

Today is a travel day for the Tokyo Swallows as they prepare to play games on nine consecutive days. The team’s next scheduled day off is Monday May 7th.

Spirits are high in Tokyo as the birds recently swept the Yomiuri Giants and took two games from the Chunichi Dragons (one tie).

But the past six games have all been played at Jingu Stadium, and two-thirds of the next nine games will be played away from home.

Here’s the upcoming schedule:

Saturday April 28th (1:30 PM start) vs Hiroshima (Away)
Sunday April 29th (1:30 PM) vs Hiroshima (Away)
Monday April 30th (1:30 PM) vs Hiroshima (Away)

Tuesday May 1st (6 PM) vs Yokohama (Away)
Wednesday May 2nd (6 PM) vs Yokohama (Away)
Thursday May 3rd (2 PM) vs Yokohama (Away)

Friday May 4th (3 PM) vs Hiroshima (Home)
Saturday May 5th (6 PM) vs Hiroshima (Home)
Sunday May 6th (6 PM) vs Hiroshima (Home)

So while you’re planning your schedule around those nine games, make sure to answer the 10 questions in the most recent Tsubamegun Community Opinion Poll. Please vote only once.
