‘Bobby Forever’: Now that’s a big flag

Unfurled at a recent Chiba Lotte game

At the beginning of the game on Sunday we all had a pleasant surprise.

As always, as our starting lineup in being announced the right field cheering section (Oendan) rolls out and enormous banner that covers the entire section that says “Marines is my Life.”

Well today’s game was sponsored by Master Card and the sign was dedicated to Bobby and read “Bobby Forever” “Priceless” and in Japanese (Hiragana and Kanji) “Value that can’t be bought.”

Another nice gesture by the fans, along with a petition signed by 120,000 people, showing their support and love for Bobby.

The day ended as good as it began with a walk off (Sayonara) victory in the 11th on a base hit by our backup shortstop, and personal favorite of mine, Hayasaka.
