Photos From Fitch Park

Courtesy of BCB reader ronsanto10 and his wife, Seiko, we have quite a few photos of action last Wednesday at Fitch Park.

He also passed along the following story:

There was a funny incident with Kosuke. The coach throwing BP to Fukudome yelled over to the translator, "I want him to practice bunts. How do I say "bunt" in Japanese?" With all the Japanese reporters and dozens of fans (including me) looking on, the translator smiled and said, "Bunt-o". Everyone had a good laugh.

(Note, ronsanto10 is of Japanese descent.)
