Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Readers: Once again my thoughts are turning to baseball … baseball.

I am re-blogging this post from the FUJINSEI blog, written by the always delightful Arria Cross (Denny bows respectfully). Please enjoy her post.

Comment:
I know that they are just throwing out the first pitch here … but theoretically a team could try this in a real game, similar to how some teams may implement a “shift” against particular batters who tend to hit the ball to the same place.

A defense could line up six fielders behind the pitcher to create a distracting multi-armed deity (think Buddhist or Hindu statues). Then put two more fielders in very shallow left and right center.

The strategy is that the batter would be confused by the multiple arm movements … perhaps even more so if it were unknown which player had the ball.

If you see this defense at the 2016 World Baseball Classic, remember that you saw it here first

I found this cool video of Japanese dance troupe WORLD ORDER led by former mixed martial artist Sudo Genki (須藤元気) at one of my favourite blogs Spoon & Tamago.  The video features WORLD ORDER performing a choreographed performance as leader Sudo Genki throws the ceremonial first pitch at a Japanese baseball match.

Last week Genki Sudo and his dance troupe WORLD ORDER were invited to throw the ceremonial first pitch to kick off the start of Japanese baseball. Sudo is a mixed-martial-artist-turned Buddhist-internet-dancing-sensation that has wowed the world with choreographed robotic moves. For the opening pitch, Sudo decided to borrow a page, or scripture, if you will, from his religious practice and reenact the Senju Kannon, or thousand-armed Buddha.

Watch the video below.  It’s cool.

  1. Hi Denny!

    Thanks for re-blogging. I don’t know much about baseball, and I rarely watch an actual game–well, except for baseball anime series–but I enjoy watching it now and again. I don’t understand much of your baseball explanation, but still thanks.

    Cheers!

  2. If all of baseball looked like that opening pitch, I’d actually watch it. 🙂
