Fred Lewis’ first season with the Hiroshima Carp will be mostly spent getting used to Japanese, ouendans and games that can end in ties. Luckily, the 32-year old is already used to playing baseball at a high level, and for now that’s enough.

“It feels good,” Lewis said of his experience in Japan thus far. “I get a chance to continue my career and show my talent. I just love to play the game of baseball. Just happy to showcase it here in Japan. It feels good to be wanted in such a great game that I’ve played my whole life. I’m just happy to be here.”
