Next year, for the second time in less than a decade, the "M"s and "A"s will begin the season with games to be played in Japan (the same two teams did so previously in 2012).

The 2019 MLB campaign will get underway with a two-game set to be played March 20-21 at the Tokyo Dome, and will count as home games for Oakland.

The Pac Northwest will be well represented in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Remember the sushi party we had when this happened before a few years ago? Another one sounds good.

I'd love for Natsumi to cater that party! Smile

Well, we didn't have that party this time, and I didn't even get up early to watch like I usually do--but the 2019 season is officially underway with the Mariners beating the "A"s, 9-7, in the first game!

Evidently Moneyball doesn't exchange too well in yens, because the Mariners won the second game of the series as well, in an exciting 12th inning walk-off victory.

I loved the reception Ichiro got there. What a perfect ending he had, retiring from the Mariners but getting to play in Japan for his last series. By the way I did get to see a lot of the game yesterday, because I was up at 4 a.m.
