Around the NPB Horn: Tigers, Carp, Fighters; and Kudo might have a suitor in the Lions

Hanshin Tigers

...The Tigers announced that their Fall camp will run from 10/29 to 11/16 in Aki City, Kochi.  Scheduled days off are 11/2, 11/7, and 11/12.  A list of player that will be attending the camp will be announced within the next few days.

Hiroshima Carp

...Fall camp for the Carp began today (10/26).

The team's objective for the off-season is to improve their fielding and base running.

Nippon Ham Fighters

...The Fighters announced that Yoshihiro Sato has retired.


...Kimiyasu Kudo may have a potential suitor in the Seibu Lions.  But other than that, it doesn't appear as though there's much of any interest in the 46-year-old right-hander.

Kudo started his career with Seibu and could be returning to the team after a 5-year stint with Daiei (1995-1999), a 7-year stint with Yomiuri (2000-2006), and a 3-year stint with Yokohama (2007-2009).
