...So Taguchi was not available to play tonight due to a fever.
...Buffaloes' dorm manager, 62-year-old Toshio Hoya, was found sitting lifelessly in his car at around 12:40pm this afternoon. He was rushed to a hospital and pronounced dead upon arrival at a hospital. There were no external injuries on his body; a brain stem hemorrhage appears to be the cause of death.
Hoya's car was found about 200 meters away from the player dorm. He was last seen boarding his car at about 9:50am and driving off. Hoya's car engine was on when he was found.
