  • Kuwata Retires

    I thought that this scene was very touching...
    "To honor Japanese tradition, Kuwata carefully walked to the McKechnie Field mound about an hour after the Tigers-Pirates exhibition game ended and, without stepping on the white-painted pitching rubber, carefully placed a ball atop it.
    More than 50 Japanese reporters and photographers watched the ceremony, some with visible emotion. Kuwata is a beloved baseball figure back home after spending his career with the country's signature team, the Yomiuri Giants."
    I love ceremony, and I think that's one reason why I like Japanese culture so much (at least, what little I know about it).
