Nice move to have this delegation visit the Peace Park, guided by Tuesday night's starter (and Carp alum) Kenta Maeda. A day of austere reflection should psych up this rag tag MLB team to a good game backing Maekun.

Mattingly was my idol as a kid in the 80s, I am so psyched that he is in Japan now.

I watched the "World Series Champion" St. Louis Cardinals play Japanese all stars in the old Hiroshima stadium in 1969 so this isn't the first time MLB has been there.

Personal visits fine but they really have to do this publicly?? No need to mix sport & politics I say
