Hideki Matsui's old high school manager, Tomoshige Yamashita, gave Hideki Matsui seven books on MondayTwo of them had connections to Ichiro Suzuki.

One of the books was titled "The Ichiro-Style Motivation Revolution" (イチロー式モチベーション革命).  The other was "The Top Class Thinking Method" (一流の思考法).

Yamashita hopes the two books will not only provide Matsui with more information about his rival (know thy enemy), but also give him some insight on conditioning.


Akinori Iwamura is continuing his 88 temple pilgrimage in Shikoku.  He temporarily stopped after visiting his 40th temple in December.
