Some of those were pretty good. Some of those weren't worthy of being in there.

The thing that impressed me the most is some of the outfield assists that were shown. Very impressive.

Made me very grateful that I got to see the 2012 reds play defense in person.

I see that they are about 40 years behind in ballparks, still in the artificial turf cookie cutter park era...except for the skin infield, that's unique for a professional ballpark.

I don't understand this. It's all in Japanese! ;)

I agree. It reminded me of the bit Chris Elliott used to do on Letterman back in the 80s. Marv Albert would come on the show every once in awhile and show highlights of some great plays and some bloopers. Elliott came on a few times and parodied the segments.

It is also interesting to see the different camera angles that they are using over in Japan compared to here.

Pretty cool video, but whoever put that together needs to take an editing class. They cut away from most of those clips to the next one way too early.

When I was in Osaka for a sumo meet I came across one of those cookie cutter stadiums except they no longer played ball in it. I entered the stadium to find the field to be concrete with display homes built on them. I checked out a few. Can't recall the homes, but pretty bizarre location to go home shopping.
