There were about 80 members of the press on-hand to cover the first day of camp.

Hiroshima Carp

...All eight of Hiroshima's draft prospects had their teeth checked on Wednesday.

Rakuten Eagles

...Rookie mini camp began today and lasted about 5 hours.  One of the training exercises included running back and forth between two points 20 meters apart.  From the sounds of it, it seems like players were required to run for as long as they could.
