Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken at the stadium of the Intercity Baseball Tournament currently held in TOKYO DOME. An Intercity Baseball Tournament is a tournament of the nonprofessional baseball performed in summer every year. For participating in a convention, it is necessary to win straight victories in the primary of each district. This time, thirty two teams chosen from national each district are participating this tournament. A participating team is basically a company team which has taken root to the district. The employee and family of the company and cooperation company come to a stadium, and they support their team using a megaphone, a balloon, a towel focusing on the cheering party and cheerleader of the stage. It may be aimed at union of a company and the upsurge of morale through aid. It is a very familyish spectacle which projects the old good time of Japanese companies. By the depression of these days, the major company abolished some of sport items owned in a company by cost reduction. However, about baseball and soccer with national popularity, a company still seems to make it continue. Anyhow, if we come to a stadium, some spectacles which are not seen in everyday life will be seen.
