by on Nov.20, 2010 @ 9:45 pm, under NPB

The Softbank Hawks held their victory parade today along a 2.9km stretch of road in Fukuoka.  About 250,000 fans showed up to watch the procession.  Koji Akiyama, player rep Munenori Kawasaki, and MVP winner Tsuyoshi Wada road the lead car.

FWIW: Sadaharu Oh and Hitoshi Tamura apparently rode in the same car.

The parade itself lasted about 30 minutes.  The Softbank white dog also took part in the parade.
