"HomeRun" was capitalized the way it was to avoid confusion. Someone less knowledgeable in Japanese (and overall less perceptive) might see "Homerun" with accompanying kana and read it as "Homer-un" or "Ho-may-roon." "Home" and "run" are obviously two distinct words. Also, here we do use Japanese-style parenthesis around words written in Japanese characters. --Argy 03:25, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
