...Tsuyoshi Wada will likely get tonight's start against the Orix Buffaloes.

...Koji Akiyama is in the second year of a three year contract.  For the time being, the Hawks appear to want him back next season to finish out his contract.

...Koji Mise tossed a perfect inning in relief against Ni-gun Hiroshima on Friday.  It was Mise's first game in a Softbank uniform.

...Hiroki Kokubo took 24 swings against a live arm and 20 swings against a machine during BP yesterday and hit 8 over the fence.

...The Hawks held a reception yesterday to commemorate the grand opening of the Sadaharu Oh Baseball Museum today.  About 700 people attended the event.  The Hawks have also uploaded a short video from the reception.
