by on Apr.12, 2010 @ 9:44 pm, under NPB

...The Buffaloes announced on Monday that their game against the Yakult Swallows on 5/30 will be Ganbaro Kobe Day (がんばろうKOBEデー) and that they will be wearing retro uniforms from 1995 (the year of the Hanshin earthquakes and the year they won the PL pennant).

...The chief of the umps and 5 umpires met at Kleenex Stadium on the 11th to review footage of the pitch that allegedly hit Ryo Hijirisawa in the head and determined that the pitch did not actually hit him in the head, but rather in the shoulder, just as Akinobu Okada and his coaches pointed out during the game.

...The Buffaloes are offering an upgrade for people that have purchased their line of Select Tickets (two select tickets for one reserved seat).

...The Buffaloes are running a giveaway (between 4/13 and 6/13) through their mobile site.
