I'm very happy to report that Takada will be spending more time with his wife from now on.
Former Tokyo manager, Shigeru Takada, formally ended his tenure after tonight's 3-2 home loss to the Tohoku Eagles. The farewell press conference was co-hosted by Tokyo's other prized knucklehead, team president Tadashi Suzuki (right).
Let us all remember that May 26th is a very special day. Let us never forget.
This picture captures the part of the press conference when he says that he doesn't want to be annoying or a hindrance to the team by not taking responsibility for the current state of affairs.
I think I speak for everyone when I say: Mr. Takada, you're more than two full seasons late.
Anyway, read the post over at Tokyo Swallows and feel free to join in the rejoicing.
