Japanese baseball is as much a reflection of that country’s culture as American baseball is for the United States.
There are many unique aspects of Japanese baseball that give it a distinct charm and character:
Commentators citing the blood type of a player (with the belief that it impacts performance), colorful balloon releases during the seventh-inning stretch, umpires practicing calls during pre-game warm-ups. These and countless other nuances make Japanese baseball a one-of-a-kind experience.
Japanese baseball is more than a game; it is a reflection of the culture of an entire nation. And, with baseball, it is a place where Japanese and American cultures come together.
