And now, photographs of Japanese photographers …
It really cannot be overstated how excited the Japanese media is to cover the Opening Series. The photogs travel in a 20-man amoeba, blobbing from one shot location to the next in constant motion. There’s definitely jostling for prime position, but it’s extremely polite Japanese jostling. While an Ichiro appearance is the obvious headliner, even the most mundane of baseball activities can create a buzz:
Textbook form on that power video stance.
Step 1: Point camera at stretching A’s players. Step 2: Read book.
Feel the excitement.
Does the US even have this many TV networks?
