Photos from A’s trip to Japan

Joe Stiglich passed along a couple of photos he shot with his phone from last night’s exhibition game against the Hanshin Tigers at the Tokyo Dome.

The first is a look at Hanshin’s batting practice, featuring two batting cages in use at the same time. Wonder why this hasn’t caught on in the States?

There are baseball fanatics …. and then there’s this guy.

The photographers are getting in their pre-game work as well. Either that or there was a Keiichi Yabu sighting.

And here’s Joe convincing his bosses that he’s not abusing his expense account while in Tokyo.
