...An opening ceremony was held prior to practice on Saturday.  Nichinan mayor Yoshiyuki Taniguchi was in attendance.

...Kenjiro Nomura decided on Friday during a staff meeting that he would have both the Ichi-gun and Ni-gun camps work out together on Saturday.  He's hoping that the joint camp will motivate some of the younger players in Ni-gun camp to push harder.

It was also decided that Ni-gun camp pitchers Hayato Aoki, Michito Miyazaki, Dioni Soriano, Ren Nakata, Hisashi Takeuchi, and Kota Ito would be throwing bullpen sessions on Saturday.
