Why is iconic and beloved children's character Hello Kitty throwing out a first pitch before a Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters-Fukuoka SoftBank game in Japan? (Well, marketing, but ignore that for a moment.)
Why is she dressed as a flight attendant?
Is that Dear Daniel dressed as a pilot?
Who cares! Just enjoy the video, which shows the players as active participants in the first pitch. So polite. And how about Fighters manager Hideki Kuriyama with the applause? So polite. Unless he was just like, "Get the cats off the field so we can play ball."
Maybe that was it.
