On August 14th the 64th JASC delegation spent a night at the ballpark watching the Seattle Mariners. Despite the absence of famous Japanese right fielder and long-time Mariner Ichiro Suzuki due to his recent relocation to the New York Yankees, the evening was full of excitement. JASCers enjoyed a night off from intense roundtable discussions, relaxing to enjoy the game, as well as the beautiful view of the Seattle skyline from Safeco Field.

The game ended in a Mariners win on a walkoff single by outfielder Eric Thames. Needless to say, JASC delegates made their presence felt in the stadium, joining the post-game celebration in the stands. Highlights from the game can be found at
