Tokyo Yakult Swallows ~ 2015 Central League Champs!

So, as you may have deduced from previous posts, we are Yakult Swallows fans.

Just a few minutes ago, with 2 outs in the bottom of the 11th inning, the Swallows beat the Hanshin Tigers 2-1, giving them the 2015 Central League Championship!

  

It is their first Central League Championship since 2001. It will be there last in the historic Jingu Stadium (built back in 1926), which is scheduled to be torn down after the season ends in order for a new stadium to be built in time for the 2020 Olympic Games.

 
Now it is time for the playoffs and (hopefully) a Japan Series Championship. 

Go! Go! Swallows!
