...The Swallows will be hosting Korea Day (韓流DAY) during their game against the Chiba Lotte Marines on 6/6.  Fans that attend the game will get placards with cheer words written in Hangul and the first 10,000 fans will get a free sample of some BB Cream (BBクリーム).  A Korea booth will also be set up.  And Yuko Fueki will be on hand to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

...Norikchika Aoki apparently plans on working closely with the new batting adviser, Takao Ise.

...The latest report from Nikkan Sports mentions that the Swallows already have their sights set on a number of foreign options, making a pursuit of Kazuo Matsui seem unlikely.  The second part of that article is now moot since Matsui signed a minor league contract with the Colorado Rockies.  But I'm guessing the first part still holds true.
