MLBUA Japan Trip
When 5 members of the MLBUA were selected to head to Japan for a 7 day trip, which included 4 days of games between the Oakland A’s, the Seattle Mariners, the NPB’s Nippon-Ham Fighters and the Yomiuri Giants, each person knew that their experiences were going to be amazing. What started with a grueling 11 and 14 hour plane ride respectively, ended with a trip of a lifetime. From visiting Hiroshima, amazing tea ceremonies, and fantastic Japanese dinners, our umpires grabbed onto as much of the Japanese culture as they could for the limited time they were there. Also, teaming up with the NPB’s umpires to call the games was also just as great of an experience for our guys.
