Masahiro Tanaka Chartered a 200-Seat Plane to New York for Five People and His Dog

Masahiro Tanaka of Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles Arrives at Miyazaki Airport

The Yankees paid $155 million to get Japanese ace Masahiro Tanaka to New York. And now Tanaka has paid .12% ($195k) of that fortune to bring his wife and poodle to New York with him:

Japan Airlines (JAL) confirmed he used one of its Boeing 787s but declined to disclose further details.

Jiji Press news agency said Tanaka booked out the whole plane - which usually has about 200 seats - for a group of five including his wife. His dog - a brown Toy Poodle - was also aboard, the Sports Nippon said.

Given the state of the Yanks' infield post-A-Rod, it's good for Tanaka to get used to seeing so many empty seats.
