The Rakuten Eagles will be using the new baseball during fall practice this year, beginning first with pitchers during games of catch.

In other team news...

Since the Eagles don't currently have a manager, four coaches are currently working together to run Fall practice.  Pitching coach Yoshinori Sato is not only one of those four coaches, but is also more or less the main coach as well.  He told reporters earlier today that his shoulder was feeling a little tight from all the practice and that days where passing by really quickly.  Sato also added that it was important for him to help the team out in areas outside of his own expertise.
