Orix Buffaloes: Team holds moment of silence for Oze prior to practice

by on Feb.06, 2010 @ 4:32 pm, under NPB, Spring Camp

...The entire team (both Ichi-gun and Ni-gun) and the club president got together and held a moment of silence for Hiroyuki Oze prior to practice on Saturday.  Players also wore a little patch on their shoulder sleeves as a sign of mourning.  They also hung the flag half-mast.

Spring camp will likely continue, but was limited to just a morning session on Saturday.  The team has already canceled a baseball clinic that was scheduled on the 7th.

Oze's family arrived in Miyakojima on Saturday.
