At a press conference held earlier today at Kleneex Stadium, Kazuo Fukumori (RAK) told reporters that he really wanted to play another 3-4 years but realized he couldn't when things never really got better for him after undergoing right elbow surgery in May.  Fukumori added that despite being hurt often and undergoing 4 elbow surgeries over his career, he still managed a fairly long run.

Fukumori also mentioned that he probably would not pursue a job in baseball.
