Paul wears a jacket of Chiba Lotte Marines, one of the Japanese professional baseball teams.
There are 2 professional baseball leagues in Japan, The Central League and The Pacific League.
6 teams belong to each league.
The Central League : Hanshin Tigers (my favorite), Tokyo Yakult Swallows, Yokohama BayStars, Hiroshima Toyo Carp, Chunichi Dragons, Yomiuri Giants
The Pacific League : Chiba Lotte Marines, Saitama Seibu Lions, Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles, Orix Buffaloes, Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters
Paul is Canadian, but he is currently teaching baseball in one of the international schools in Shanghai, China. Actually he has been in Shanghai for 4 years.
We promised that we would go to see the game of Hanshin Tigers vs. Yomiuri Giants at Tokyo Dome when he comes back to Japan (I went to see the game yesterday and Tigers lost the game. I don’t feel good).
By the way, my name is Hideki … Hideki Matsui moved from New York Yankees to the Los Angeles Angels this season. Good luck in Los Angeles!
