Chiba Lotte Marines
...Shota Ohmine's 2-week school suspension ended on the 24th. Ohmine had been doing various volunteer work during his 2-week suspension.
The Marines are set to meet with Ohmine on the 28th to see whether or not he's feeling any remorse for what he has done. His family will also attend the meeting.
Lotte was originally planning on meeting Ohmine at least 3 separate times in order to gauge how remorseful he was. But after receiving word from the school that Ohmine's notebook was full of self-reproach.
...Kyuji Fujikawa said that he'd be more than happy to help Kazuhito Futagami with any problems / questions he might have. That offers appears to also be open to anyone else on the team.
