japanese baseball

Tonight’s Mariner game ended better than last night’s
First of all we won. 5-3 over the Angels.
It was some sort of celebration of the ties between Seattle and Japan, particularly baseball ties. They had a pre game Taiko drum group with some very colorful costumes.

During the game Ichiro got 2 hits, scoring at least once. And the winning runs were scored on a home run by Carp (which I always associate with Japan) off of Takahasi.

    Did the shaggy beast drum too? I would love to see that costume up close.

      He/she had a smaller hand carried drum. I think it is in the hidden hand. When they were performing they were a bit far away from our seats – and I don’t have a super-duper camera. (This is a phone pic)
