Swallows, Apache in ticket promo

The Japan Times

The Tokyo Yakult Swallows and Tokyo Apache have teamed up to give fans a special discount.

Fans who wear Tokyo Apache shirts to the Swallows’ Sept. 21 game against the Yokohama BayStars will receive half-price general admission tickets. The first 200 fans to purchase these tickets and enter the game will receive the Swallows’ famous green umbrella and have a chance to sit with Apache players Kosaku Yada, Cohey Aoki, Tomoya Nakamura, Nick Davis and John “Helicopter” Humphrey.

A to-be-named Apache player will throw out the first pitch.

To return the favor, the Apache will offer discounted tickets to fans who wear Swallows shirt to their Dec. 13 and 14 games at Ariake Colosseum.
