Upcoming Event – Murton & Whiting Talk Baseball!


Author Robert Whiting

Here’s an event you won’t want to miss out on if you are passionate about baseball, particularly in Japan! On Tuesday, March 24, the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (Kansai Chapter) will be hosting an evening with Hanshin Tigers all-star left fielder Matt Murton and renowned author Robert Whiting (writer of The Chrysanthemum and the Bat, You Gotta Have Wa, The Meaning of Ichiro, and other titles). They will be discussing playing and following baseball in Japan.

More event details can be found here.

In case you were unaware, Matt is my favorite baseball player on the team, and Robert Whiting has quickly become my favorite author on the subject of baseball, as I tore through his three books over the past 3 months. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend this exciting event due to family commitments. I hope some of you will be able to go, and tell me more about it when it’s done!


“I’ll see you on the 24th!”
