America’s MLB All-Stars are going to Japan!

MLB All-Stars to Japan!  I love the American sport of baseball.  I love Japan.  Put the two together and you have the subject of today’s post.

I am still reeling from the great postseason we had this fall … of course any post-season without the NY Yankees is a great postseason!

(Yankees: It is only out of respect for your retired captain, Derek Jeter that I am not sitting here going NYAH NYAH NYAH NYAH NYAH !!!!!)

It may be all over for baseball this year in America, however there will be a series of games played in Japan. A team of (American) Major League Baseball players will tour Osaka, Tokyo, Sapporo, Okinawa and Koshien and play against Japanese teams.  Here is the announcement link.

… and a Wiki link here.

The MLB team roster is linked here:

I love these type of exhibition games.  I always cheer for Japan in the World Baseball Classic (the next one is in 2017).  It will be great to see the MLB stars match up against Japan’s teams.

I am hoping that someday, there will be a true “World Series” where the MLB World Series Champion would play in a playoff series against Japan, Korea, and Cuba’s champion teams.

One word of advice for Japan however. MLB baseball players are not familiar with Japanese customs and language.  Please give these guys a break.
