Nutritious = fried food? Eat to be a carp? Only in Japan…

The Hiroshima Carp won the Central League for the second year in a row. This weekend the Climax Series begins.

応援団 for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp (広島東洋カープ)

If you ever go to a baseball game in Japan, you want to sit in the oendan (応援団). This is the cheering section, and it’s way more fun than anywhere else, even though they are the farthest from home plate. These are the cheap seats but also the fun seats.

On this hot and humid day in Hiroshima the cheap seats were sold out so I was forced to buy a seat near third base. The views were better, but the best part was that the kind, little, old Japanese lady next to me used her fan on me the entire game like I was her son or something.

My A’s are set to rename their field and open their season tonight in Oakland. I won’t be there, but I do hope to get down there to see a game soon.
