Video of Mariners vs. Hanshin, March 25
If at all possible, I would have bought a plane ticket to see this exhibition game - - Ichiro & Iwakuma vs. Hanshin at the Tokyo Dome on March 25, oh my goodness. Unfortunately, not possible. So I'm trying to find out if this game will be broadcast in Japan, either on TV (cable or non), or if there will be any kind of Internet broadcast.

ROOT Sports in Seattle does not list the game on their schedule, but the Mariners site ( indicates that ROOT Sports will air it. So there's confusion. And in Vancouver B.C. it's hard to tell if our cable will show it (sometimes do, sometimes don't). Anyway, any info is welcome, and I am happy to reimburse something for anyone in Japan who could record the game for me, if it's shown there. Thanks.

IIRC, the last time MLB did an Opening Series in Japan (2008), the exhibition games between the A's or Red Sox against the Giants or Tigers were only available (at least in the States) on MLB.TV.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
