Ryota Igarashi recently received a box of items he had shipped from Japan. When he got the box, he noticed a big hole in the side. Upon opening the box, he realized he was missing three baseball gloves with the number 18 stitched into it. He has put in another order for more baseball gloves but will now have to use the glove that has the number 53 stitched into it (the glove he used when he played for the Swallows).
Igarashi jokingly told reporters that he's thinking about giving Jerry Manuel his old glove once his next batch of new gloves arrives.
