Tom Hanks, Pro Yakyu Fan

» 01 May 2009 » In npb »

This is pretty good — Tom Hanks is going to throw the first pitch at Yomiuri-Chunichi game on May 8th at the Tokyo Dome. Hanks commented, “I’ve loved baseball since I was a kid. I’m really looking forward to meeting the WBC winning manager, Tatsunori Hara. I’m going to try to throw a strike right down the middle” (translation of a translation). Hanks will be in town to promote the Japan release of Angels and Demons.

If the stars align you’ll be able to check out the game right here on NPB Tracker.

    Oh. Interesting. I’ll actually be at that game, but I’m not sure I’ll make it to the Tokyo Dome in time for the first pitch (going after work). I’ll be in the Chunichi cheering section, of course.
