Mac has been a passionate supporter of the Tokyo Yakult Swallows since his first game which he attended two weeks after arriving in Japan. Well known amongst the Swallows support, Mac has travelled the length and breadth of the country following his team through the dizzying highs and depressing lows of the last 10 years. Highlights include winning the Central League Championship in 2015 and reaching the Final Stage of the Climax Series in 2011. And of course, any victory against crosstown rivals the Yomiuri Giants is joyously celebrated!
A visit to Jingu Stadium is one of the true highlights of a trip to Tokyo, even for people who would not consider themselves fans of baseball! Japanese baseball is a cross between the American game and sitting in a British football crowd, with beer delivered to your seat for good measure! Mac will share his knowledge and passion for the history and colour of Japanese baseball. We even provide all the gear required to make you look and sound the part!
