Marty Brown and the owner of the Hiroshima Carp visited the Gokoku Shrine for a ceremonial victory prayer. Said Brown, "The new season is just about to start. The new ballpark will be great. And I think the team is finally shaping up. I'm hoping that come summer, we'll be having lot's of fun in Hiroshima."

    I really want to try and make it down to Hiroshima. My GF actually has a friend living down there and has mentioned wanting to visit Hiroshima to see her — maybe we can do that and catch a game as well.
