Nippon Ham Fighters: 8,000 high fives?

by on Oct.19, 2010 @ 4:15 am, under NPB

The Nippon Ham Fighters are apparently planning on high fiving around 8,000 fans during their Fan Festival on 11/20 at Sapporo Dome.  And depending on the actual final number of high fives performed, it's possible the Fighters may make a submission to the Guinness Book of World Records.  But setting a world record isn't the goal of the event; bridging the gap between fans and players is.

In addition to the high fives, the Fighters also plan to hold autograph sessions with players during the festival.  All told, they expect to connect with over 10,000 fans.
