Happy birthday, Dee Brown!

応援歌 Dermal Brown

Dee Brown of the Seibu Lions fight song (応援歌)

@dee_Dermal #埼玉西武ライオンズ #seibulions #NPB

Dee Brown, formerly of my Oakland A’s (for three at bats anyway–two of which ended with a strike out), played for my Japanese team, the Seibu Lions, as well. This card, the cheerleader is holding, shows his fight song which sounds like this and can be translated as:

I believe you
I believe you
Shoot and flap far with the crack of the bat

I’m guessing the “I believe you” part should actually be “I believe in you” and the rest is basically asking for a home run or a well-hit ball. Rather than a walk-out song, like we have in the USA, in Japan these individualized fight songs are played/sung throughout a player’s at bat.
