Japanese players try to get news after earthquake
Question of the Day
At the Mets’ camp in Port St. Lucie, Fla., Igarashi was with his wife, son and daughter. He tried in the morning to contact family and friends in Japan, but found communication lines shut. By late afternoon, he was able to get through.
“It’s pretty obvious from watching the imagery on the television screen of what’s going on,” he said. “But to get the details of the tremors in certain areas and the damage I went to the Japanese live stream to find out,” he said.
Minnesota second baseman Tsuyoshi Nishioka said he did not know about the damage until getting to the ballpark. He found out his family was safe, then debated whether he should play. He did, getting a hit against Boston.
“I understand that I’m in an occupation where I can bring hope and energy back home to Japan,” Nishioka said through a translator. “So I wanted to be on the field and think about people back home and give it all out on the field to try and give something back.”
