    Trips to see the SoftBanks Hawks baseball game and Dazaifu Tenmangu shrine are followed by a farewell dinner with Sagan Tosu president Minoru Takehara

    The Juventus Legends rounded off their stay in Japan with a trip to watch one of the country’s most loved sports – baseball - played live at the state-of-the-art Yahoo Stadium by the SoftBank Hawks, who emerged victorious over the Lotte Marines.

    With president David Trezeguet back in Turin for yesterday’s UNESCO Cup 2015 press conference, Toto Schillachi (who played in Japan for four years with Jubilo Irata) and Fabrizio Ravanelli acted as the Legends’ representatives, meeting sponsors and posing for photographs with excited fans in the stadium.

    The duo then joined the rest of their team-mates in taking to the field before the game, greeting the 35,000 strong crowd and throwing several souvenir miniballs into the stands.

    The afternoon saw them visit the Dazaifu Tenmangu shrine, located 20 kilometres outside Fukuoka, before ending their stay in the Far East with a dinner hosted by Sagan Tosu president Minoru Takehara.
