14-year-old knuckleballer Chelsea Baker is currently in Japan. She met with about thirty of her fans in Tokyo today and is scheduled to make two appearances in Osaka on March 9 and 10. Baker will also visit the Hyogo Blue Sandars on March 9 and make an appearance at Kippy Stadium with Eri Yoshida.
UPDATE 3/10 @ 1:06am - Baker met with Yoshida today at Kippy Stadium. The two first met back in 2010.
"She may be younger than me but she has a lot of knowledge and experience with the knuckleball. When I see her, it makes me want to work harder," said Yoshida.
