^^ Kosher I hope, as everything in ramen is either pork laden or has shellfish ;)

That bright green astroturf brought back good memories of 2002.

I remember progressively getting more and more mad when stadiums riped that stuff out and put in various ugly shades of field turf. I'm used to the field turf now, but I still liked to watch pro baseball being played with bouncy-balls.

I know the stuff sucks, but it is part of baseball history whether people like it or not.

And it was just so.....bright and shinny!

Anyway, great TR.

When we were in Tokyo, my wife son and I bought what we thought were seats for the Tokyo Giants game only to go inside of the dome to find out that we were stuck in the standing section in the back with about a thousand other people.

It was just too hot and cramped in the back. I can't imagine spending a whole game there. Even though they have a no refunds policy, they were nice enough to give us our money back for the tickets, since the game hadn't even started yet. We also managed to warn a couple of American businessmen who were about to make the same mistake as us!

Next time I will buy my tickets ahead of time. Thanks for the pictures Joey!

^As I mentioned above, I highly recommend the website for buying Japanese baseball tickets. I had read that Giants tickets were the hardest to come by, so I had no problem paying a little bit extra for the "service" fee to be guaranteed decent tickets delivered straight to our hotel. The guy was also real helpful in answering any questions I had.

^Thanks for the advice. Our decision to visit was a last second thing, but I will definitely not show up there without tickets in hand next time. Thanks again.

Instead of paying attention in class, I am updating this thread....

Todays update is a Dodgers vs. Braves game from last season enjoyed from the Dugout club. If you are a baseball fan in L.A. with some cash to spare, I highly recommend using craigslist to score some Dugout club tickets for under face value.

It's all you can eat and non-alcoholically drink, has a private lounge you can hang out in afterwards, offers the best seats in the house, and offers the opportunity to meet players as they are entering/exiting the clubhouse and dugouts before and after the game.

Nice report, Joey. One of the things I like about what's been done to Dodger Stadium is the return of its original pastel seat color pattern. That looks much better. Red seats don't belong at Dodger Stadium because red is the color of another Los Angeles team...

I did get to visit Dodger Stadium last year for the first time since 1985. Hopefully I can get to a game this year, too, and I'd like to go to one down at the stadium where another Los Angeles team plays...

Great pictures, I've never sat that close and would eventually love to put myself down in that section. Last season was actually the first year since the 1995 season that I didn't make it to at least one Dodger game. Hopefully that is not something that becomes a trend.
