Batboy

with 6 comments

Hands up who’s been watching the World Baseball Classic? None of you!? Understandable, really; baseball’s not really a sport designed to be judged on one-off games like football and American football can be. But, I’ve enjoyed the bits I’ve seen, especially the Netherlands beating the Dominican Republic. One of the things I’ve enjoyed the most, though, is the uniforms that the batboys at the Tokyo Dome wear. The uniform is white trousers, a white Adidas t-shirt with “TOKYO DOME” on the front, over a blue long-sleeved undershirt, and a white helmet with a blue bit at the front. Can’t find any photos and only fleeting screengrabs off the highlights on the website, but they kind of remind me of that dude off Battle of the Planets.

  6. You’ve seen Battle of the Planets but never seen Speed Racer? I’ve not seen the new SR movie but the old cartoon is classic (in a weird way).
