Hawks to offer Ichi-gun batting coach job to Yasuo Fujii

The Softbank Hawks will apparently offer Orix Buffaloes' developmental scout Yasuo Fujii a job as Ichi-gun batting coach.

While Fujii was a developmental scout for the Buffaloes this season, he actually worked as a Ni-gun coach (2003 - 2007) after his retired in 2002.  He then moved to the scouting department in 2007, but became a Ni-gun batting coach in 2008.  And then earlier this year, Fujii returned to the scouting department.

The Hawks are interested in Fujii's work as a Ni-gun coach and hope that he can come to the team and uncover another Takahiro Okada.
