Wow. Trip over.
My favorite things
- Twelve games/twelve stadiums.
- I spent at least a week recovering from jet lag after returning to the states.
- I have tried to keep in touch with as many fellow tour trip attendees as possible.
- The travel and travelling in Japan was a lot for me.
- It was fantastic to see Sean in his 'home' country.
- Of the 196 innings (half innings) I scored this trip, 23% were a 1-2-3 inning. That's higher than I originally thought it would be. That's why one should validate facts and data. And, it's a true example I have nothing better to do during the non-baseball months.
- Meeting other baseball stadium visitors
- The cheerers and cheering sections in the Japanese ballparks
- People throwing away their own garbage
My least favorite things
- The food
- The nets around the fields
- No hat pins
Someone asked me if I would recommend this trip and if I would do it again.
Yes, I would absolutely recommend it if:
Would I do it again?
- You can travel well (lots and lots of walking and steps - minimal handicapped access areas in Japan)
- Your desire is to see baseball games and stadiums and NOT other Japanese tourist things
- You have the cash to do the trip (the yen was not good to the USD at the time I went)
- Here's the link: Japan Ball
Probably not. I did it. There are plenty of other stadiums to visit in the US and Canada. Those type trips (of which I have three planned in my head) are less expensive, require less time off from work, and have easier travel arrangements/conditions.
Thanks to all of you for following along.
