...Tadahito Iguchi knocked out his 7th walk-off homer of his career yesterday off Kyuji Fujikawa (HAN) in the bottom of the 10th.  It also happened to Lotte's third walk-off victory of the season.

...Pro wrestler Tajiri will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch on 6/18 (vs Rakuten Eagles).  It's part of the SMASH meets Marines event the club has scheduled for the day.

...The Marines announced today that they raised a total 2,639,848 for foot-and-mouth disease relief efforts in Miyazaki.  That includes the amount they raised from their charity auction (the amount mentioned yesterday), donations they received during the charity auction, partial proceeds from sales of sake, and donations submitted by the players and personnel.
