What does a professional baseball team do when traveling to Japan?
It's pretty simple for the Oakland A's, who are currently there to open up the 2019 regular season against the Seattle Mariners on March 20 and 21.

The A's have already played two exhibition games against teams from Japan, and the Japanese crowds are loving the Green and Gold.
A "Let's go Oakland!" chant even broke out in the middle of a game.
If you feel so inclined to cheer on the A's during their two regular season games in Japan, there will be a watch party (not so) bright and early for first pitch at 2:35 a.m. PT
We're hosting Japan Series Watch Parties at Mad Oak Bar ‘n' Yard - 135 12th Street, Oakland. Watch Parties will be held for both games vs. Seattle, early mornings of Wed, 3/20 & Thu, 3/21. Doors open at 1:35am for the 2:35am first pitch. Yes, times are AM. https://t.co/NhTiXjzAhH pic.twitter.com/UoW3lP73Q1— Oakland Athletics 🌳🐘⚾️ (@Athletics) March 11, 2019
