    Yakult Atoms

    Posted by japanstats 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.
