Norio Tanabe to take over for Hiromoto “Dave” Okubo?

Norio Tanabe, currently working in the scouting department, could be returning as Lions' Ni-gun batting coach, the position previous held by recently let go Hiromoto "Dave" Okubo.  There are also two other possibilities: Ni-gun fielding / base-running coach Toru Kumazawa could take on batting coach duties; or there could be a shuffling of coaches.

Prior to full squad workouts at Seibu II Stadium earlier today, the Lions also provided Ichi-gun and Ni-gun players and coaches a brief explanation of what has been happening.
