Locals are very passionate about the sport and expect to see people of all ages loudly cheering their favourite team. Note: wear the appropriate jersey/team colour for where your seat is. Home side = home colours and vice versa. I went to a Tokyo Swallows vs. Hiroshima Carp game and the latter fans outnumbered the former! They even sell visitor merch in and outside the stadium.
