Koji Akiyama is in the second year of a three year deal with the Softbank Hawks.  On Sunday, the Hawks officially decided to keep Akiyama on board through to the end of his three year deal.  It seems the club is also open to the possibility of giving Akiyama a multi-year extension past the 2011 season, likely dependent on how he does next year.
