Japanese Spring Training

1/31/11

Spring training season is upon us folks. Okinawa just so happens to be the Florida of Spring Training here in Japan. We are lucky enough to have the Hiroshima Carp staying at the hotel here with us. Today the media were swarming the lobby (I snuck a pic with my iPhone from the balcony above) buzzing around with their heavy duty photography equipment and bowing courteously as the players and coaches would walk by. There was a level of respect and privacy that was present here that doesn't exist in the states, so it was neat to see. Never once was a player approached by the media unless they solicited the media themselves, the media just bowed, showed respect, and left them alone until they "got a turn" to interview them, then things went back to business as usual.
tapping away at their computers trying to get the first stories in!
