Almost nobody in the US may know this, but Major League all-stars have come to Japan to play a seven-game exhibition series against Japan's all-stars.

The opening game was held yesterday, and the big leaguers lost to their Japanese counterparts 8-4. Surprisingly, Barry Bonds struck out three times and Jason Giambi twice, in spite that, in the pre-series game held the day before, they had overpowered the Yomiuri Giants, this year's Japan League champions, hitting two home runs each. Ichiro also went 0-for-4. I hope they will prove themselves tonight, though I can't watch the game because of work!


Konishiki said on TV that he likes MLB very much. It's hard to find someone who makes Barry Bonds look so small. :)
