Katsuya Nomura will likely return as the Rakuten Eagles' honorary in 2011.  Nomura is currently in the first year of a 3-year deal.

Nomura didn't get to visit Kleenex Stadium much early on during the season due to health problems, but that changed once he got healthier.  According to an Eagles' rep, Nomura provided the team with timely advice over the course of the season.
