Modern Samurai Play Baseball

This is just an update on my post about Children's Day and the samurai armour. I had to laugh when I saw Yomiuri sports newspaper this morning:





























The Children's Day spirit lives everywhere; these two baseball players of Yomiuri Giants are ready to fight the Hanshin Tigers.

Which do you think is the better baseball bat, the bat or the sword?

These replica suits of armour are quite fantastic.

The suits of armour are fearsome enough without considering the bat and sword!

I don't know a lot about baseball but it does seem fitting that competitive sport is compared to warriors. At a guess I think the bat might give better results.

But the warriors aren't wearing the scary face masks! With those on even the spectators would run from the stadium!
