...Norifumi Nishimura wants his players to be aggressive on the base paths. During the game against the Swallows, Keisuke Hayasaka managed to steal third on an 0-1 count during Tae-Gyun Kim's at bat in the first. In the 6th, with Hayasaka on third and Kim up to bat again, Hayasaka took off again, but this time Kim made contact, allowing Hayasaka to score from second.
Seems Nishimura has given everyone the green light -- picks your spots and if you think you can make it, go for it.
