Heading into Japan’s tsunami zone

Above, see the live video we streamed to you as we rode through one of the worst-hit areas of the deadly tsunami. Even now, a year later, the devastation and smell of decay lingers.
Japan experienced a deadly earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011 that will forever be remembered in this country. This morning, I am on a high-speed bullet train to Sendai and then will board a bus to the city of Ishinomaki, about 45 miles east of the epicenter of the 9.0 magnitude quake. Stay tuned here throughout the day as I follow a Mariners contingent that includes Hisashi Iwakuma, Hector Noesi, Alex Liddi and manager Eric Wedge.


The ballplayers will give a clinic to about 100 children from the area, while MLB is donating $500,000 to the refurbishment of a local baseball field damaged in the quake. The field was used as a local headquarters for relief efforts in the area.
