...Norichika Aoki donated 161 special softballs to the All Japan Grand Softball Federation today at Jingu Stadium.  His donation is part of a Nippon Broadcasting charity event from December 2009.  Incidentally, that's one ball for each hit he recorded last season.

...Tony Barnette (gout) worked out with some of the pitchers at Jingu today -- his workouts included playing catch and short distance sprints.  Barnette is expected to be activated again within the next few days.  Said Barnette, "I'm 100% ready.  I'm good to go now.  The pain only last half a day anyway.  With the team doing better lately, I can wait to get in there and help."
