    use Google reverse image search to figure out what it was, found “Mazda…”, searched “Mazda baseball stadium,” turns out it’s in Hiroshima.

    I miss VFYW so this is a great game. Clues: Compass rose on image showed north. Shadows of light banks indicated northern hemisphere. Add left-hand drive and you get Japan. Google images (without reverse search) and the checkerboard seats points to Hiroshima stadium (34.391856, 132.484817).

    I guessed it was Japan just because that seemed much more likely than you using a US stadium and there’s not a lot of other countries (if any) that would have a baseball stadium that big; it seemed to be confirmed by left-hand traffic patterns. I spent a long time looking at images of Japanese baseball stadiums before trying Google Image Search. Sigh.

    Mazda Zoom-Zoom Stadium (I love that), Hiroshima. Home of the Toyo Carp

    1) It’s clearly a new stadium.
    2) Cars are driving in the left, rather than the right side of the road, so it’s not an American stadium.

    Whereas is baseball popular? I googled “Japanese baseball stadiums” and came up with this: http://www.stadiumjourney.com/news/08-18-2013/449/japanese-baseball-stadium-rankings/.

    Then keyword search “new” and found the Mazda Stadium. Then to confirm, I searched for it in Google Maps (34°23’32.0″N, 132°29’05.5″E).

    That you chose a ball park in Hiroshima is interesting.

    Finally got around to looking at these…
    Did an image search for ‘baseball stadium Japan’, having looked at a couple of other countries first.
    The stadium in Hiroshima matched; for instance the right field deck in the bleachers and the gap in the upper tier to the right field behind home plate.
    Checked with google maps.
