Long-suffering baseball fan

Now that the football season is almost over, it is time for me to turn my attention to baseball. When I was growing up, I loved this sport and I cannot imagine summer without it.

And of course, there is plenty of baseball in Japan, although I have not really paid much attention to it until this year. The closest team to my home is the Yakult Swallows, and I am going to make every effort to go to a game this year. Let me know if you want to go! This weekend, the Swallows played the Chiba Lotte Marines, which are managed by Bobby Valentine. If I was going to have a second favorite team in Japan, maybe that would be it.

But my TRUE favorite team is the one I grew up with, the San Diego Padres. Being a Padres fan is like being a Cubs or Red Sox fan, but at least most people recognise how difficult it can be one to be of their fans. Not so with San Diego. Maybe this year is different. I hope so!
