    Seibu v Oji, Ryan Fujita retirement game

    Posted by japanstats on 2009 January 13日 Tuesday

    Seibu Prince Rabbits hosted the Oji Eagles in a special game on Sunday 11 January. The game featured Seibu wearing modified Seibu Railway era jerseys, the Wakabayashi brothers in the ceremonial face off, Kiyoshi Ryan Fujita’s retirement ceremony and speech, and the Seibu Shinjuku line going out of service at game time but the game still drawing standing room only crowd of over 2800 people. “Kataribe” Jiro Kato has a great post about this game with wonderful pictures. He also made another post outlining Ryan’s career in Japan with Seibu and the national team, also with more great photos.
