Draft News and Notes: Lions, Kikuchi gearing up for press event

by on Dec.08, 2009 @ 7:38 am, under NPB

Yusei Kikuchi will be arriving in Tokyo today in preparation for his press conference tomorrow.  The team and Kikuchi have also agreed to use his full name for everything: the player registry, the score board, his uniform, and every time he's announced over the PA system during ball games.

But it's too bad they won't be able to start the practice from day 1: the uniform Kikuchi will be donning during the press conference on Wednesday will only have his last name, KIKUCHI, on it.

Quick, someone grab a Mackee and add in YUSEI before the event.
