These ads are running in Tokyo subways for the days leading up to the opening series, which starts next week.
The ads roughly translate to: "The moment when confidence becomes conviction. IT strategy based on EMC's technology is the winning approach."
Japan is a huge market - the country spends the second largest amount on information technology, or IT, in the world behind the United States - and EMC is hoping to use the Red Sox opening games to build its brand abroad.
The company scored a deal to get its logo on the Red Sox jerseys - the first corporate logo on the team's uniform - and EMC logos will be emblazoned on all Boston Red Sox opening series replica jerseys sold in Japan by Major League Baseball.
EMC is also auctioning an all-inclusive trip for four (or two pairs) to the games to benefit Curt Schilling's "Pitch for ALS" on the local sports radio station WEEI this week.
