Major leaguers to visit U.S. bases during season-opening trip to Tokyo
Published: February 10, 2012
Looks like Major League Baseball fans of all ages at Yokota Air Base and Camp Zama will see a special group of visitors come late March when the Seattle Mariners and Oakland A’s come to Tokyo to open the 2012 season, officials told Stripes on Thursday.
Oakland plans to send a handful of players to Yokota on March 25 and the Mariners to do likewise on March 26 to Zama for handshake, photo and autograph sessions. Keep an eyeball glued to your base’s commanders’ access channels and Facebook pages for details.
