Perhaps not an overly interesting story, but perhaps worth a chuckle or two.
Lotte Satoru Komiyama approached the Eagles bench prior to their game on Wednesday night to exchange formalities with Katsuya Nomura (a formality in Japan).
Komiyama made his last appearance of his career on Tuesday in a game against the Rakuten Eagles at Chiba Marine Stadium and faced one batter, Fernando Seguignol, and retired him on one pitch and picked up a save.
Nomura: Sorry that game lasted only 1 pitch.
Komiyama: That's ok, I may have gotten knocked around had I thrown more pitches.
