...Changes to the pitching schedule due to the rain: Shingo Ono's start has been shifted to the 12th against the Seibu Lions. The original starter on the 12th, Hidetaka Kawagoe, will be pitching in the same game in relief.
...The Marines announced that Yasuhiko Yabuta registered kanji changed from 藪田 to 薮田.
...Shunichi Nemoto will be appearing in the March 31st issue of the women's fasion mag anan. The magazine is apparently running a feature on men with a variety of different business backgrounds. Nemoto is the only baseball player in the feature.
...The fans in right will be doing a little jig, called the Nishimura Dance, after every game the Marines win at home this season. It's apparently the same exact dance some fans did back when Norifumi Nishimura stood in the batter's box during his heyday. The video I linked to is apparently from a practice run from 3/3.
...The Marines feel that Yuki Karakawa and Yuta Ohmine hold the key to a successful season.
