...Hiroyuki Kobayashi likely won't return until, at the earliest, the 30th (or the 27th according Sponichi).  Seems they want Kobayashi to pitch in a couple of games before he makes his way back to Ichi-gun.  He is scheduled to pitch in a Ni-gun game against Yakult on the 27th.  On Thursday, Kobayashi threw 30 pitches in the bullpen.

...The Marines initially planned on selling the Kim Chee Tae-Gyun Burger for 52 yen the minute Tae-Gyun Kim hits a home run at Chiba Marine Stadium, but they decided to drop that to 50 yen.  They now also have a limit of 52 total orders for the burger at the discounted price.

They decided to place a limit on the number of burgers sold at the discounted price after they sold out of all 150 burgers by the 7th inning during a test run on the 16th (exhibition game vs Hiroshima Carp).

...Marines Magazine March / April edition featuring Tsuyoshi Nishioka on the cover is now on sale for 100 yen.

...Marines Dance Academy students will be performing before both of the weekend home games (3/27, 3/28).

...The Marines posted information about their Farmer's Market between 3/26 - 3/28.
