Koji Uehara, Junichi Tazawa to bring World Series trophy to Japan

Koji Uehara and Junichi Tazawa are going home, and the World Series trophy and Wally the Green Monster are going with them.

As a part of the Red Sox’ efforts to share the trophy with their fans across the world, the two relievers will bring it to Japan next week (Jan. 20-22), a trip that includes stops with Japan’s prime minister, Shinzo Abe, and Caroline Kennedy, the US ambassador to Japan.

Uehara and Tazawa will share the trophy with Abe and Kennedy Tuesday, the middle day of the three-day stay. The trophy will then be available for a public viewing Wednesday at the MLB Café Tokyo.
