My favorite baseball player

4 May

Today I went out to see a farm teams’ baseball game between the Tigers and the Buffaloes.
It’s because my favorite player plays there.
I’ve liked him since he was a rookie for the Hanshin Tigers.
He plays for the Buffaloes now.
In the first part of the season, he was a member of the first team.
But he only had few chances to play there and was demoted to the farm soon.

I often go to the first teams’ games.
So this is my first time to go to a farm team’s game.
The stadium has a seating capacity of about 1000.
On the contrary, the main stadium which is for the first teams’ games has a seating capacity of more than 30,000.
In addition, the ticket costs only 500 yen.
But it costs more than 1000 yen to go and back from my home.
If I lived near there, I would go there frequently.

The game was exciting.
My favorite player hit two for three.
He is still a good player even though he’s been laid off 3 times.
Balls batted by younger players seemed to be lazy.
I felt the difference between the first team and the farm team.
I hope he will be promoted to the first team!
