...Former Ikusei player Hiroki Yamada worked out with the Ichi-gun starting pitchers today at Yahoo Dome and tossed about 90 pitches in the bullpen.  Seems Yamada could get his first Ichi-gun start on the 10th against Yokohama Bay Stars (in place of Hideaki Takahashi).

...Nobuhiko Matsunaka was taken to the hospital immediately after he fouled a ball off his right knee during last night's game.  The diagnosis: contusion on his right knee, no problems found with the bones.

...The 2010 Hawks Private Book (2010ホークスプライベートブック) goes on sale on 6/9 -- it's essentially a photo book of the "private" lives of Hawks players.

...As part of FAN! FUN! STAGE, the Hawks plan on holding an event called Karaoke to Dome prior to 8 games between 6/13 and 8/29.  Select fans will get to sing the Hawks' cheer song and the fan that gets the highest score will have a chance to sing inside the Dome on 9/10.
