Newest Hanshin Tigers import (and former New York Met infielder) Eric Campbell arrived in Japan on the 26th. He flew via Narita Airport into Itami (Osaka). The press greeted him with questions right away – which is to be expected, I suppose. He said he did not get a lot of sleep on the flight over, but he’s excited to be in Japan. When asked about his impressions of Japanese cuisine, he said, “All I knew of Japanese food back in America was sushi, so nothing else comes to mind at present.”
