  • Yakult Atoms

    Posted by simon c on 2008 May 6日 Tuesday

    As scheduled, the Tokyo Yakult Swallows wore their Yakult Atoms throwback away jerseys this weekend as part of Japan’s Golden Week promotions in a series against the Yomiuri Giants. The uniform, being a road jersey, says Yakult in the front like regular Swallows road jerseys, but the caps said “Ya” instaed of the usual “Ys” and the there was a Mighty Atom (Astro Boy) patch on the sleeves. Swallows, in a bit of a tailspin, managed to get swept by the Giants after sweeping them at home to open the series. The unis looked alright, but nothing spectacular. A Kokutetsu Swallows 

    Just as a bonus, here’s the Swallows fans cheering with their umbrellas whenever the team scores and during the 7th inning stretch (Lucky 7).

    Here’s the umbrella cheer song (Tokyo Ondo, a local festival song) in action.
