The Nippon Ham Fighters announced earlier today that they agreed on a contract extension with Brian Wolfe for the 2011 season.

Wolfe's comment on the extension:

"I'm extremely happy to have a chance to return as a member of the Nippon Ham Fighters.  It is unfortunate that we missed the Climax Series this year.  I'd like to contribute to the team as a starter next season help bring home a championship to the fans.  I look forward to everyone's continued support."

UPDATE (10:26pm JST): seems his salary for 2011 will be about 45M yen (up from the 36M yen he made this season).
