...Hirokazu Ibata played out an entire game at short in a non-domed stadium for the first time on Thursday.  Why is that significant?  Obviously with non-domed stadiums there are other things to consider when playing defense, like ground conditions, the wind, and battling the sky.

...Yohei Ohshima broke up a no hitter in a game against the Rakuten Eagles on the Thursday when he nailed a double off Kazuo Fukumori in the bottom of the 8th with 2 outs.

...Takashi Ogasawara had another solid outing on Thursday against the Rakuten Eagles and has now tossed 12 scoreless innings during exhibition play.
