The Players Association and media got together to celebrate Katsuya Nomura's 74th birthday on Monday and had two cakes, decorated with an image of his face, prepared for him at a hall in the hotel his team is staying at while in Sapporo for an upcoming 3-games series with the Nippon Ham Fighters.

"There are 12 managers in the league, but I must be the only one to have such a big celebration," said Nomura. "I'm really grateful."
