Andy in Japan

Judging from the katakana on the above screenshot, Andy's known in Japan as "Firippusu."

Andy Phillips homered in his first Major League at-bat, and apparently he's not wasting time in Japan, either. An anonymous tipster left a comment with a link to a YouTube video of Andy's first homer in Japan:

The Carp stats can be found here. Andy was 1 for 4 in his first game, but the one was that homer.

Thanks for the link, Anonymous! Very cool. Nice to see that Andy's doing well (so far, at least!).

As you can see in the first picture, he just failed to be fist player ever to homer in his first at-bat in both the MLB and the NPB.

Hi.I'm from Hiroshima,Japan.
You can watch Andy's recent play (Carp vs Giants) here↓
click on the scoreboard, then you can watch the inning.
Sorry for my poor English!

Thanks, Carpfan. Very cool.

There's a 13 hour time zone difference between NY and Hiroshima, so it looks like the Carp will be playing while New Yorkers are at work or asleep. I might be able to catch a game over the weekend, though.

And your English is fine.
