7/13/12 – Hanshin (Away) [Game Cancelled]

July 13th, 2012

 Tokyo Swallows

Hanshin Tigers

Streak: Drew one  Last 5: LLWD-


As some of our faithful readers will note, this past week has been a circus. Apparently, the Friday the 13th hijinks now applies to the entire week and not just the one day. Unfortunately, Koshien did not see any baseball played on this infamous day.

For those looking for some entertainment this humid and muggy evening, I offer you some short stories on the history of baseball in lieu of my poetic ramblings.

Tomorrow will hopefully see these two teams go at it. Schedules hurlers are Tateyama for the Birds and Kubo for the kittens.


About Scott

Scott is an avid fan of the underdog. He spent his childhood cheering for the Chicago White Sox and hating all teams from New York. Once he moved to Tokyo, he quickly directed this same hatred toward the tenants of the Tokyo Dome. Thus began his support of the Swallows (and anyone playing against the indoor Tokyo team).
In his mind, there is not a better place to be than at Jingu stadium watching the Swallows from the bleachers, drinking a nice cold drink, and cheering along with the extremely knowledgeable Swallows fans.
