World Series trophy heading to Asia

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jan 30, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

I think it’s pretty great that the Yankees are sending the World Series trophy on a bit of a tour this winter. They’ve usually been very protective it — and they still are based on the handlers with white gloves — but it’s great to get it out into the public. Next stop on the World Series Trophy Tour is Asia. Here are the highlights of the press release, plus a picture of the trophy boarding it’s flight.

Trophy

The New York Yankees announced that they are bringing their 2009 World Series championship trophy to Tokyo, Beijing and Hong Kong on a six-day tour beginning Sunday, January 31.

The Yankees delegation will include Team President Randy Levine, Senior Vice President and General Manager Brian Cashman, Vice President and Assistant General Manager Jean Afterman, Senior Vice President of Corporate Sales and Sponsorships Michael Tusiani, Director of Pacific Rim Operations George Rose, Executive Director of Stadium Event Security Todd Letcher and Media Relations Manager Michael Margolis.

—JAPAN VISIT—

The trophy will arrive at Tokyo’s Narita Airport on Sunday, January 31 at approximately 5:00 p.m. Japan Standard Time (“JST”, 14 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Standard Time), marking the first time the Yankees have brought their World Series trophy to Asia.

On Monday, February 1 at 5:00 p.m. JST, a historic moment will take place at the MLB Café in Tokyo as the Yankees’ 2009 World Series trophy will be on display alongside the Yomiuri Giants’ 2009 Japan Series championship trophy in the first-ever instance of the two titles being side-by-side. The Yankees’ delegation will be joined by Yomiuri Giants owner Takuo Takihana and MLB Asia Vice President Jim Small. Following an exchange of gifts and a brief press conference, the two trophies will remain on hand for fans to enjoy throughout the evening.

—CHINA VISIT—

Following a travel day from Tokyo to Beijing, the capital of China, Yankees officials will meet with the China Baseball Association (CBA) on Wednesday, February 3. The Yankees created a partnership with the CBA on January 29, 2007, when the pair drafted a Memorandum of Understanding that formalized the CBA’s first strategic alliance with a Major League Baseball club. At 2:00 p.m. China Standard Time (“CST”, 13 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Standard Time), the groups will hold a press conference at New World Hotel Beijing, Hu Jia Lou, Chao Yang District.

The trophy will make its first public appearance in the world’s most populous country on Wednesday, February 3 at 5:00 p.m. CST at the New World Department Store located at No. 3 Chong Wen Men Wai Da Jie, Chongwen District, Beijing. Media and fans are invited to the press conference, which will include the full Yankees delegation, CBA officials and New World representatives.

The Beijing Yankees, 2009 winners of the first annual Diamond Cup, which is given to the champions of Major League Baseball’s “Play Ball” youth baseball program in China, are also expected to be in attendance. Yankees executives and the young players will join together at Wednesday’s event to celebrate their respective championships. After the media portion of the program, the trophy will be exhibited for all in attendance.

Following a travel day on Thursday, February 4, the trophy will make its Hong Kong debut on Friday, February 5 at 2:30 p.m. CST at New World Development’s recently-opened K11 mall at 18 Hanoi Road TST, where media will have an opportunity to speak to members of the Yankees delegation. Additionally, fans will be able to enjoy the trophy in its final public appearance in Asia, as it will be displayed among other world-class works of art.

* The trophy “will be displayed among other world-class works of art.” How cool is that?

    Awesome, I wonder if the Yankees lost any fans over the Matsui deal. Reposting this from last thread.

    Posnanski’s article was posted 7/2/2009. On 6/29/2009, just a couple days earlier, commenter #10 on Tyler Kepner’s popular NYT blog wrote:

    There are certain athletes who, when they come to mind,
    immediately remind me of (and are worthy of) the same simple but complete appreciation Hemingway showed when he described the Yankee Clipper as “The great DiMaggio”.

    I wonder why it isn’t making the tour of Taiwan, The Philppines and South Korea, especially the US military bases?

  3. CD January 30th, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    Couldn’t they just put it in a Taxi and cruise through Chinatown?

  4. Doreen January 30th, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    I think this is pretty cool.

    Where do the trophies go after the tours? Do the Yankees keep it, or does it go to the HOF?

    When we visited the Hockey Hall of Fame 2 summers ago, we were able to see the Stanley Cup and take a picture with it. We had to wear white gloves!

  5. Doreen January 30th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    It is somewhat curious that none of the players who played for the trophy are going on the tour, though, isn’t it?

    CAT DIARY

    Day 983 of my captivity.

    My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.
    They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed
    hash or some sort of dry nuggets.

    Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I
    nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

    The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape.

    In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet.

    Today I decapitated a mouse and droppe d its
    headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into
    their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of.
    However, they merely made condescending comments about what a ‘good
    little hunter’ I am.

    There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was
    placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However,
    I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard my confinement
    was due to the power of ‘allergies’. I must learn what this means, and
    how to use it to my advantage.

    Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my
    tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try
    this again tomorrow – but at the top of the stairs.

    I am convinced that the other prisoners are flunkies and snitches. The
    dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released – and seems
    to
    be more that willing t o return. He is obviously retarded.

    The bird has got to be an informant. I observed him communicating with
    the Guards regularly. I am ce rtain that he reports my every move. My
    captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell,
    so he is safe. For now…

    Doreen, I don’t think so. Why would they want to go halfway around the world instead of spending this last month or so with their family?

    Doreen, just the one Commissioner’s Trophy. None go to the HOF as far as I can tell. The team keeps the trophy.

    With the Stanley Cup, each player of the winning team keeps it for a couple of weeks to show it off. They’ve follow the Cup in the bottom of swimming pools and used for chip dip and everything in between. It’s been pretty well beaten up from time to time. Every few years it gets taller and taller as they add tiers to it to add names/plaques to it. There are three cups: the original cup, the authenticated cup, and the replica cup.

  17. Betsy - Romine wasn't built in a day January 30th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    Doreen, I personally don’t get excited by this stuff, so I find it hard to believe that these guys would also. It’s a long trip and probably takes awhile to recover from.

    “I blame my father for this. He is very allergic to anything with fur so I was always kept away from animals growing up. I just never got the warm and fuzzy pet thing. When I see them now I just don’t get it.”
    ————————

    Erica,

    This changes for a lot of people if they bond with a certain dog or cat. To an extent it is like people who never believe in love until they meet that certain person (except it is a lot easier to fall in love with a dog/cat then a person!)

    If you foster a dog/cat for a rescue organization for a couple weeks, I would be willing to bet that (1) that dog/cat is not leaving at the end of the foster period and (2) that will not be the last dog/cat you own.

    Slightly edited b/c did not realize how many cat lovers were here.

    At the risk of sounding horribly insensitive and cold (and maybe cynical too), I just don’t understand the point. Its bad enough living in a world where people you love disappear in an instant. Why grow attached to an animal with a 15 year lifespan knowing you’ll probably just wind up saying goodbye

    I just adore animals, ALL animals, from cute and cuddly to those like lions and sharks (I LOVE sharks, especially the Great White – they are absolutely spectacular). My parents would never let me have pets when I was a kid – I don’t count the goldfish that constantly died- and I’m still mourning my lost childhood, lol. There’s a service dog at my office whose owner works in the IT department. She’s a black lab named Lucy and I absolutely adore her. She’s got the most beautiful, lustrous coat and gorgeous brown eyes; she’s also a sweetheart. I take my dog love out on her…….when I see her (and when she’s got her harness off), I’m always playing around with her and she loves it. Lucy loves everyone – what a doll. Service dogs just amaze me.

    I do not like domestic cats – just not a fan of them as I find them cold. However, I think Russian Blues are spectacular and I do love them.

    Gorillas are my favorite animal; I once adopted a mother and baby a few years ago.

    I am not a pet person.

    I also have allergies, so I’m sure that that has something to do with my arm’s-length approach to pets.

    If my kids really really really really really wanted a pet I might have given in, but in my heart of hearts, I know I probably wouldn’t have. I couldn’t have shouldered that responsibility. As I said before, I know my limitations. I guess I’m like a grandparent in that regard: I’ve loved and appreciated other people’s pets, but I don’t have to walk them and feed them and take them to the vet.

    Maybe if I didn’t have such high maintenance kids it would be different.

    Bod,

    Yeah you do not realize how intelligent dogs can be until you spend a lot of time with them. Pit bulls in particular are so misunderstood.

    My perception on cats and their bonds with humans is probably really skewed by my childhood. When I was really young I thought my family had one cat. It took me until I was about 4 to realize we actually had 2 cats!

    In my old neighborhood there was an older woman and her daughter who lived with a dog. He was actually really cute. By the end of the dogs life, he was so sick they had to give him shots twice a day. These shots cost a fortune and they could never go anywhere because they always had to give the dog the medicine.

    Erin, I just think they are magical creatures…..they are so human like. I once read a magazine article in a bookstore about the poaching (murder) of gorillas and and I cried for a good while. They are just beautiful, gentle creatures – not quite as close to humans as chimps are, but MUCH nicer. I refuse to ever watch King Kong because poor Kong gets killed.

    Who needs the Yankee trophy when you can look at some rather pedestrian shots of kookies and birdies?

    :(

    Background is that I started with feeding them right on the deck. I graduated to a deck feeder because it really got messy. When I finally had the deck painted, it took one day for the stain to be stained (one of those kids had some potent urine!)

    So now the feeder is in the backyard.

    (I have two absolutely beautiful shots that are nowhere to be found. Those I would love you two see if I ever find them.)

    Enter, kookies and birdies!

    ————————–

    Erin, I just think they are magical creatures…..they are so human like. I once read a magazine article in a bookstore about the poaching (murder) of gorillas and and I cried for a good while. They are just beautiful, gentle creatures – not quite as close to humans as chimps are, but MUCH nicer. I refuse to ever watch King Kong because poor Kong gets killed.

    **********************
    I know what you mean-they do have a magical quality about them. I try to stay away from books about poaching and such because they just break my heart!

    lets go yankees-

    One of my earliest experiences with animals was my cousin’s dog, Butley when I was 5 years old.

    Butley was already really old at that point, but I liked him a lot. One night I slept over their house and woke up much earlier than anyone else. I crept out of bed to use the bathroom. I saw an unidentifable substance all over the bathroom floor. It wasn’t until I stepped in the brown stuff that I realized what it was.

    I had no idea what to do, but I knew I couldn’t put my feet down on the floor (5-year old Erica was wise). So I literally crawled into my cousin’s room and woke him up to help me cause I was very afraid I did something wrong and would get in trouble. He went and got baby wipes and cleaned my feet for me. (This story is also known as the nicest thing my cousin ever did for me).

    But after that, I was done with animals :-)

    the visit of Babe Ruth to Japan (documented in the Ken Burns series), is one of my favorite moments in the history of baseball.

    to view their embracement of both Babe Ruth and the game itself, makes me sentimental toward the nation of Japan. Particularly, because other nations rejected the game when attempting to indroduce it (England etc).

    I like the fact Japan have won the WBC, both times. They have love for the game and take it very seriously. Vote me in favor of a japan/US World Series

  54. Doreen January 30th, 2010 at 8:30 pm

    Great pictures, Trisha. I especially liked the one “sharing the goodies.” I love to see cardinals. The bright red is striking.

    When we lived in Illinois, we were visited by cardinals all the time, and it was incredible to see the difference between the male and female bird. The male so regal looking and the female almost indiscernible in the tree branches.

    Once I was cleaning my windows, oh, years ago, in south central NJ, and there was a tiny yellow bird right outside my window. One of the prettiest I’ve ever seen.

    Trisha, my brother-in-law fed “his” squirrels nuts. He would buy these huge bags of nuts (I think walnuts). And he had feeders up high for the birds. he had to stop – I forgot what happened, but it had to do with the well-being one of or the other of the animals in the yard. Anyway, they would wait at the door for their treats. It was something to see.

    Bod,
    Yeah you do not realize how intelligent dogs can be until you spend a lot of time with them. Pit bulls in particular are so misunderstood.
    My perception on cats and their bonds with humans is probably really skewed by my childhood. When I was really young I thought my family had one cat. It took me until I was about 4 to realize we actually had 2 cats!
    =====

    Cats definitely have a ninja thing going on, when it suits them, lol.

    I do understand how smart dogs are. Pigs have the intelligence of a 3-year old human child, and make great pets, I hear. Unfortunately, most people think they make great breakfasts.

  68. trisha - OPPC forever - (new lucky picture from last day at the old Stadium) BRING ON THE GHOSTS! January 30th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    Bod- thank you, from my heart.

    The photos I can’t find are my favorite because they are beautiful snow shots. I am going to look a little longer. They are probably not so great as shots of the birdies as (I think) they are in their overall composition. Figures those are the two I can’t find!

    Having grown up on a dairy farm with a wide variety of animals and also dealing with the loss of many I don’t regret for a minute having the pleasure of these animals.

    We sold the cows in 1999 and it was a sad day. My friends were gone.

    Maine,

    Hope you’re feeling well.

    People think chickens are stupid.

    Well my organic farmer sold packaged goods as well as his own vegetables. He also had a pet rooster. Everyone would feed this bird popcorn, and if you didn’t, he’d bug you until you gave him some.

    One customer refused to feed this bird. The bird found this guy’s car, climbed through the open window into the passenger seat, and relieved himself. The guy was irate, and no one doubted that the rooster was taking notes on who drove what car. The guy himself said the bird was out to get him.

    They continued their contentious relationship and my farmer, who was a blast (used to write poems for each vegetable, funny as hell, too), said the bird’s demeanor would change whenever this guy showed up. The customer didn’t find any of this funny, btw.

    I guess the authorities got wind of her and ran her out of business. It’s not legal in NJ, apparently, but if you cross the border into PA, you can find raw milk products.

    One of our dogs is hypoallergenic. We thought one of the kids might have an allergy problem so we sought out a breed we knew wouldn’t be an issue.

    Turns out he wasn’t or outgrew it so the second dog was an easier pick.

  111. trisha - OPPC forever - (new lucky picture from last day at the old Stadium) BRING ON THE GHOSTS! January 30th, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    mel, I started watching toward the end of the show, so I’m not sure about all of the inner workings. Danielle certainly is a train wreck though. She seems to bed down with anyone who’ll go near her. (I tend to think the things in the book are probably accurate.) And she is quite unattractive. She reminds me of the grinch who stole Christmas!

    Listen to this. I had read about a month ago that Danielle got into a fight with Jacqueline’s daughter at some country club affair and Jacqueline’s daughter attacked her. Then Danielle pressed charges and the kid went to court. According to the article Jacqueline and one of the others got into a fight with Danielle that day and J’s kid thought Danielle hit J – which she didn’t. So the punch line is that Danielle and J are no longer friends!

    This new season should be a barn burner!

    mel, Bod linked to that one about the lion cubs! It’s up above!!!

    Doreen, seriously I wonder how all of those shows end up on television! I’ve only heard about Jersey Shore. Supposedly one of the guys is from RI. I can’t bring myself to watch that one. I’ve never watched the Sopranos either. I started watching the housewives after I saw an episode of the NY housewives when I was channel surfing. I picked it up near the end of the season. I have to say it was like watching a trainwreck. You’re horrified but you can’t look away.

    Those stereotypes really are awful. I’d say some nonItalians are making a ton of money and laughing all the way to the bank!

    Doreen thanks for putting them back up. They’re gorgeous.

    Wait, Jacqueline is married to the brother of the sisters.

    Are you talking about the older sister (the plain looking one)? She has a couple of adult sons. The blonde one is Dina.

    Danielle & Dina don’t get a long.

    Last spring when I thought my daughter would like having a dog, I did a ton of research and actually found a few breeds I could probably live with. I even went so far as to research a local breeder (well, fairly local). But I couldn’t do it. Like I said, I’m reluctant to add the responsibility. I don’t ever want to be in a position of taking on a pet and then realizing I can’t do it.

    Fortunately for me, Vanessa, while she loves the animals that she’s come in contact with, and they love here, has not expressed a desire to have a pet of her own. Which kind of surprises me, because she is one to love her dolls and stuffed animals. She sleeps with collections of different soft dolls every night. And DVDs. And books. I really thought she’d want a pet. And though I’m not quite a pet person, for her, probably, I would have done it.

    Night Boddy. It’s been so sweet.

    Trisha -

    I read that only one of the girls on the Jersey Shore show is actually from New Jersey. It’s beyond me.

    But apparently there are more than enough people out there who want their 15 minutes. I won’t watch, though. Not to say I haven’t been tempted (like a car wreck), but so far I’ve resisted.

    “Arrest & name change! Pay attention!”

    Laughing so hard I’m crying!!!!!!!!

    No, the news is that J and Danielle are no longer friends! And J’s daughter physically attacked Danielle and Danielle pressed charges. That happened in the “offseason”. But go figure this out. They had a reunion show (you can see it on You Tube) and Dina and Danielle seemed to kiss and make up.

    Doreen, do you know the premise of Jersey Shore?

    Trisha -

    Honestly, no. I’ve only heard bits and pieces about what has happened on the show.

    There are towns at the Jersey Shore that are family oriented and wonderful, and then there are towns where the activities are more adult, shall we say? But the former is more predominant than the latter. But if you only show the one and call it the Jersey Shore, what is the rest of the country supposed to think?

    I know people have fun watching/laughing at this stuff. I just have no desire for it. Even on the n ights when there’s nothing on – and that’s often when it’s not baseball season.

    Ita time all us yankee fans speak out and amke some noise. We need to bring Damon back, this budget thing stinks. Hal needs to understand that us fans are unhappy. What is next stiff jeter because they have a budget? No I for one do not believe there is a budget, so yankees, do the right think and bring Damon back.Mr Stienbrenner would have never play this sort of game, he always wanted the best player and team on the field. this stinks bad……..

    As reported yesterday, China threatens sanction over U.S. arms deal with Taiwan, Beijing suspended plans for visits between the Chinese and U.S. I wonder how this visit from our Yankees will be viewed in Beijing. It seems diplomacy between two countries are strained. Lets hope our Yankees delegation will be greeted with much pleasantries.
