Hiroshima debates a new ballpark

Most baseball fans in Hiroshima agree with the mayor that the local team, the Carp, need a new stadium.

But opinions diverge on how much public money should be spent on the new stadium—an issue Americans can relate to. But the debate over where to built it is even more highly charged. The mayor is eying a site on the other side of town, while many Hiroshima residents say the stadium should be rebuilt on its current site next to the Peace Park and the atomic bomb memorial.

Sure, it's quiet now, but you should have seen the crowd on Free Sake Night.
