Saitama Seibu Lions

埼玉西武ライオンズ japan baseball fans

My first game of the season was a good one. My Lions beat the visiting Nippon-Ham Fighters from Hokkaido.

Half the fun at Japanese baseball games is the cheering. Above is a video I took of one of the many cheers. Get your cheers down before the game for maximum enjoyment. ;) Here you can practice them with music, but you need to be able to read Japanese.

The words to the cheer (for a player named 久) in the video are:
光り輝く 
日はまた昇る 
燃える男だ 
チャンスに久
かとばせ久
Go Go Let’s Go 久

    Do you have any idea what song they play when Hiroyuki Nakajima goes up to bat?

    中島 研ぎ澄まされた そのセンスで決めろ グランドスラム

    A loose translation would be:

    Nakajima, sharpen it up, fix on that sense, hit a grand slam.

    Actually, I was wondering about the J-pop song they play. Like when #42 goes up, they play Empire State of Mind by Alicia Keys. When Nakajima goes up they play a Japanese song and I was wondering if you knew what that was.

    Sorry, SM. I can’t help you there. Although several J-pop songs now sound familiar to me, I couldn’t tell you the name of a single one. ;)
