...The Eagles will be shifting to baseballs made by Zett to baseball made by Mizuno, beginning with tonight's game against the Chiba Lotte Marines.  According to Sponichi, when the club made the same switch last season, Takeshi Yamasaki started hitting homers out at a quicker pace: from 4.2 games to 3.2 games.

...Hideki Asai joined up with the Ichi-gun roster for practice yesterday and will likely be activated in time for a start on the 8th against the Chiba Lotte Marines.
