The tour of Japan is always good for trivia. For instance, next June you can fleece San Francisco fans with this one: Where did Bruce Bochy manage his first game in a Giant uniform? (That’s him front and center in the team photo.) In 2004 Brad Wilkerson went on this tour as a member of the Montreal Expos, making him the last man to play baseball in that franchise’s uniform.
