I went to my very first college baseball game yesterday at Jingu Stadium. (Thanks to Deanna from Marinerds was kind enough to invite me!)
The following two games were on the schedule:
- Hosei Daigaku vs. Kansai Kokusai Daigaku (Hosei won 5-2)
- Soka Daigaku vs. Fuji Daigaku (Fuji won 2-0)
I was originally planning on watching both games, but due to a sudden change in my schedule, I had to bail out after the first two innings of the second game. In hindsight, it was probably best that I left when I did because my backside is still sore from sitting for such a long time -- I actually sat from 10am to 2:30pm straight without getting up once. To top it off, I also once again forgot the sunscreen and my arms, nose, and the little area of the forehead that peeks through when you wear a baseball cap backwards, have a nice red glow.
In any case, I don't really have much time right now to go through any of the specifics, but I did want to go ahead and post the photos that I took at the game.
Here are two images of the stadium itself (these are for you Mike):

And for some reason, this happens to be my favorite shot:
