hawks vs. ham fighters

always willing watch a baseball game in person, i recently accepted an invitation to attend a game in tokyo dome. one of the companies i work for had free tickets for the staff — so on a monday night we all met at the stadium to watch the hawks, from down in southern japan, lose to the ham fighters, from northern japan. the stadium gave everyone free hawks jerseys, so it was amazing to watch the purple clad crowd cheer in unanimous  japanese baseball cheering harmony. kata-bahseh!!! means, “get a base hit!” a lot of my staff is british, so they had no idea what was going on and preferred drinking suntory premium malts, to the action of the game. no argument from me there.
