    Japanese team w/Reds-like Unis

    I got this link from the Sports-Guy's blog but check this out for
    1) Entertainment and 2) The odd similarilty of the uniforms to the Reds.
    Just some off day entertainment. Enjoy.

    Granted the batter who chased the pitcher shouldn't have done it, but there's no shortage of racist subtext in that clip. :thumbdown

    The voiceover is all in Japanese. The circus-like music is what did it for me.

    Tony Bautista was the batter, if I remember correctly.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Their team mascot was my avatar on here for several months...When checking into Japanese baseball I always followed the Carp because they had the same uni as the Reds.

    Re: Japanese team w/Reds-like Unis

    An ex-girlfriend of mine is from Hiroshima, home of the Carp. As some may have noticed, translations done from Japanese to English by a Japanese translator often fall short on accuracy. Anyways, she told me that for many years, the Hiroshima team uniform said, "Carps". That is, until someone finally pointed it out to the team that a written pluralizing of "Carp" was unnecessary & incorrect. I do not recall how many years the Carp played w/ the incorrect spelling on their uniforms, and other official gear, but I do remember her telling the story with much amusement.
