Orix Buffaloes: Cabrera works out at Ichi-gun, has the number 41 on his cap

...Seems like the practice schedule for Spring camp from the 8th on has been more or less "reset" to nothing.  Although an updated report mentions that training will return to "normal" beginning the 10th (or the start of the third session).

...Keiji Ohbiki is taking the news of Hiroyuki Oze's death pretty hard.  His latest blog entry mentions how bad he feels for not having been able to stop Oze and that he was really sorry.

Suicide can be really tough to get over.  Which makes me wonder, how do teams in Japan deal with losses such as this?  Japan isn't all that high on counseling yet, but you'd think in a situation like this that the team would try to help their players deal with the pain.

...Alex Cabrera joined the Ichi-gun group on Saturday for practice and will likely stay with the Ichi-gun group for here on out.

Cabrera had the number 41 written on the side of his cap.
