Yakult Atoms Baseball

The Tokyo Yakult Swallows baseball team was once known as The Atoms, and Astro Boy was their mascot. Although the team changed their name years ago, they recently played a game in retro throwback Atoms uniforms as part of Japan's Golden Week celebration. You can see the Mighty Atom himself represented on this uniform's patch.

Check out the details and more pictures at the Japan Hockey, Baseball, etc. blog.

The Atom's aren't the only Baseball team with an anime character for a mascot. Check out the familiar face on the Saitama Seibu Lions logo!

Can you imagine a Sports team with, say, Spider-man as a mascot? Now that would be cool.
