The season for baseball has begun!
As Tokorozawa is home to the Seibu Dome, we of course are rooting for the Saitama Seibu Lions!
Actually they were just 'Seibu Lions' until last year, when they changed the name to 'Saitama Seibu Lions.' Then they went on to win the Pacific League Championships and the Japan Series. They even won the Asia Series that year. So it seems like the new name brought on a spurt of good luck. Or it could've been the new manager...
Anyways, the shops around the station have a whole bunch of posters on the walls. We're hoping to win the championships 2 years in a row! Go Lions!
