Lots of pink at Koshien for Mother's Day!

Screen shots from Sky A cable network. Hanshin Tigers vs. DeNA Yokohama Baystars.
The umpires were wearing pink shirts and hats, the catchers were wearing pink chest protection, the players were wearing pink wrist bands and some batted with a pink bat, all to honor Mother's Day. Too bad the balls weren't pink...
Umeno finally had a good day: two hits, a sacrifice fly and one RBI. It's about time. I hope he keeps it up.
Sato (grand slam homerun) and Chikamoto (four hits) posing with red Mother's Day carnations after their hero interview.
The final score: Hanshin 15, DeNA 7.
Hashin swept the the three-game series with DeNA and took first place away from them. Let's keep it!



I cooked the Mother's Day dinner. I made a Japanese version of chicken cacciatore from my Mom's recipe that I haven't eaten in years. Yummy! And the gals were happy...
