Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles to hold “We Love Wheeler” day on July 9th

The Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles have announced in their official site today that they will hold “We Love Wheeler Day” next month in July 9th with their match against the Seibu Lions (1:00 in the afternoon; Sunday) at Miyagi Baseball stadium, the event will also showcase some Zelous Wheeler bobblehead giveaways (with a reported 7,000 bobbleheads available).

“We Love Wheeler Day”

Zelous Wheeler, who was a former Major league player, has become one of Rakuten’s (if not the league’s) most popular and well known players right now since he signed with the organization in 2015, certainly an awesome event to acknowledge one of their star players in the team.

Zelous Wheeler is also hitting .276/.342/.479 with 11 homeruns and 30 RBIs in 54 games played this season with the first place (Pacific League) Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles.
