Wanna watch the 2010 NPB Draft live, and in person?

For the second straight year, the NPB will be opening up the Draft to a select number of fans.  All you have to do is filly out an entry form at the official NPB site for a chance to win a pair of tickets that'll get you into the Grand Prince Hotal Shin Takanawa's International Convention Center Pamir on draft day.

The NPB will begin accepting entries on 9/21 at 13:00.  The cutoff date for the contests will will be on 9/30 at 13:00.  Only one entry per fan.  Selected fans will be contacted via e-mail by 10/8 at 13:00.

I'll post another reminder on 9/21 in case people are interested, but are afraid they might forget.

Incidentally, the draft will once again be broadcast on TBS and Sky A.  Nippon Broadcasting will air a radio feed of the event.  And for the first time in draft history, teams will submit their selections via specially designed Toshiba dynabook laptops.
