by on May.21, 2010 @ 6:25 pm, under NPB

...Hayato Terahara is working his way back from discomfort in his right elbow.  He is set to pitch in his first game in three weeks on the 25th (vs Ni-gun Seibu).  Terahara will likely pitch just one inning.  On Thursday, he threw 40 pitches in the bullpen and told reporters he felt good about his progress.

...It seems Yu Darvish promised to take Terrmel Sledge out for dinner after he nailed a walk-off hit for him in a game against the Orix Buffaloes on 9/15/2008.  Unfortunately for Sledge, it never came to fruition.

...The Bay Stars will be hosting 7-Eleven Day (セブン-イレブン デー) on 6/18.  Fans that submit their receipts from purchases between now and 5/27, for specially marked food items, will be eligible for various drawings for events that will be taking place on the 18th.

...Due to popular demand, the Bay Stars will be providing limited edition patch sales (ワッペン) and application services during a two game series against the Orix Buffaloes on 5/26 and 5/27.

...The Bay Stars are accepting applications from street performers for use of Y.Y. Park.

...Rie Hasegawa (model) will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch on 5/27.
