Boston Red Sox - 2008 Season Begins
The Boston Red Sox traveled all the way to Japan's Tokyo Dome to play their first game of the 2008 season against the Hanshin Tigers. Although not nearly as raucous as Fenway Park, the Japanese fans made an honorable effort to welcome the Red Sox with such familiar traditions as the singing of "Sweet Caroline" and greeting Kevin Youkilis as "Yoooooook". The Sox will stay in Tokyo for several more days, playing against the Oakland A's on Tuesday and Wednesday. Let the games begin . . .
