...Bobby Keppel could make a return to Ichi-gun as early as next week.  On Wednesday, Keppel threw 31 pitches in a bullpen session and told reporters that he was at about 85%.  He was scheduled to join the Ni-gun roster on Thursday and then pitch in a Ni-gun game against Yakult on Saturday.  His performance during that game will ultimately determine when Keppel will be called back up to Ichi-gun.

...The Fighters announced that they will be handing out player posters to fans (first 5,000)  at home games on Ladies' and Men's Days during April (a total 5 games).  They also posted a reminder of weekday discount tickets (Seniors and School Kids Day, Ladies' Day, Fan Club Day, and Men's Day).

...The Fighters' Girls will be dancing and providing fans with hi-fives prior to the start of seven games in April.  And for 10 games in April, they will also be changing up the music that's played within the Dome.
