Norifumi Nishimura: the next Marines’ Manager

by on Sep.28, 2009 @ 9:19 pm, under NPB

A number of sources close to the Chiba Lotte Marines told Sponichi that the front office has decided on promoting current head coach Norifumi Nishimura to the position of manager at the end of the season.  Nishimura will apparently have two years to turn things around.

The team will likely announce Nishimura's appointment as early as 10/8.  Fall camp begins shortly after that, some time in the middle of October.
