Waseda first round trio to hold press conference on the 4th

The 2010 First Round Draft Trio from Waseda University will be holding a press conference on November 4.  This will be the first time the three players will be speaking publicly since they were selected in the first round on draft day.

Incidentally, Waseda University is currently involved in quite a battle with Keio University for top spot in the Tokyo Big 6 Baseball League.  A decisive championship game (the first of it's kind since the two battled it out during a crazy 6 game stretch in 1960) takes place today at Jingu Stadium between the two rivals.

NHK will also be broadcasting the game (Sogo NHK at 13:05) due to the excessive popularity of the games this year (it was apparently a fairly last minute decision to carry the game).  What's more, Waseda heartthrob, Yuki Saito, will most likely be starting today's game for Waseda.
