Yomiuri Giants: Fall practice begins

by on Nov.02, 2010 @ 4:15 am, under NPB

Fall practice for the Yomiuri Giants began on Monday at Giants Stadium in Kawasaki.  All players, other than a number of foreign players that already left Japan, attended the 3 hour long first day.  The Giants will continue to work out at Giants Stadium until the 4th and will then continue on with fall camp in Miyazaki beginning on the 6th.

A couple of things appear to be on the agenda for fall camp this year, including Yoshiyuki Kamei attempting to learn how to play third base and Hisayoshi Chono working on becoming more of a power hitter by strengthening his lower body (wants to increase weight from 80kg to 85kg) and using a heavier bat.
