...Yuta Ohmine will be starting a practice game against the Yakult Swallows on the 23rd instead of Yuki Karakawa.  Karakawa's start was pushed back to the 25th against the Nippon Ham Fighters (practice game).  The change was made because of a blister on Karakawa's right middle finger.

...Sunday marked the end of Ichi-gun Spring camp.

...Batting coach / general fielder's coach Eiji Kanamori was selected to say something during morning shouts on Sunday.  He first shouted "Good morning" in Japanese, English, Korean, and Spanish.  Kanamori then proceeded to shout about how he ended up dying his face black while trying to get rid of the white hairs on his head.

...Yuta Ohmine ended up throwing 2,366 pitches during Spring camp.  Takumi Nasuno, Yasutaka Hattori, Yuta Kimura, and Tomohisa Ohtani also reached 2,000 pitches.

...An additional note from Saturday's intra-squad practice game:

Tae-Gyun Kim started at first and batted fourth.  He hit a 2-run homer off Shunsuke Watanabe in the first.
