Japanese Playoff Baseball Game Turns Into A Mud Bowl

Illustration for article titled Japanese Playoff Baseball Game Turns Into A Mud Bowl

In the first round of the Nippon Professional Baseball playoffs in Japan, the Hanshin Tigers and Yokohama DeNA Baystars battled through absolutely absurd conditions to play an entire baseball game in the mud. The result was unlike any baseball game I’ve ever seen. To watch the highlights with the full swampy effect, here’s “Born On The Bayou.”

But here is the absolute best one, which can only be serviced with “Yakety Sax.”

The Baystars ended up the winners, 13-6. Each team’s local dry cleaner was a loser.
