 Tonight’s game has been cancelled due to high precipitation falling from the heavens.

For your reading pleasure, here is a link to one of my favorite baseball poems, “Casey at the Bat.”

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.

    It should be noted that the game did actually start, meaning that the starting pitchers probably wasted a start in the roataion. Akagawa pitched an inning of 1 hit ball on just 4 pitches, while Maeda pitched an inning and 2/3s giving up a hit and hit a batter on 33 pitches.

    So we don’t have to face Maeda this series – perfect!

    • That is a very good thing indeed. Thanks weather!
