Game #7 – Fukuoka Yafuoka! Dome

Game #7 in Fukuoka – The Softbank Hawks beat the Saitama Lions 8-7 in a 12-inning pitching match. Ballgames in Japan can end in a tie after 12 innings (I believe), so this was a sweet win.

Stayed in a capsule hotel for the first time in Fukuoka… what a weird experience!  I’m still trying to wrap my brain around the ‘why’, but at least now I understand the ‘how’.

Game #4 – Kyocera Dome Osaka

Made it to my 4th game today in Osaka to see the ORIX Buffaloes play the Fukuoka Hawks. Great game, Buffaloes won 4-3 thanks to some monster hitting by Aarom Baldiris.

The Kyocera Dome is definitely not a hitters park but it does have A/C!  I’m sure that keeping a building that big cool helps keep the home run count down.

Also, it was Little League night so there were lots of future ball players running around in their uniforms. 6 shades of adorable!
