Shinji Takahashi worked out at the Kobe secondary field today. He told reporters that he did have some difficulty tracking thrown balls but thought he'd be fine given some time to adjust. During fielding practice, Takahashi worked on some drills over at first base.
Hichori Morimoto (fractured right ring finger) also met up with the Ichi-gun team for practice today. Morimoto still requires his finger to be taped and iced, but otherwise is pain-free while playing.
