by on Jul.16, 2011 @ 1:31 am, under NPB

I'll keep this updated throughout the day.


Rakuten Eagles

The Iwate Keiba Association and Rakuten Keiba invited a total 112 tsunami / earthquake survivors (children and their families) from the Kamaishi, Iwata area to their game against the Orix Buffaloes Friday night.  A number of kids were also allowed to take the field with the Eagles at the start of the game.  (keiba = horse racing)


Play was temporarily stopped (a few minutes) at Tokyo Dome (9th inning), Yokohama Stadium (8th inning), and QVC Marine Field (7th inning)  on Friday night due to an earthquake (magnitude 5.5).
