It seems one of the things Akinobu Okada wants his club to work on during fall camp is stopping the running game. Opponents stole 125 bases against the Orix Buffaloes this past season (worst i the league).
Said Okada, "This is something the battery needs to work on. They're running too much. If they can't speed up their delivery to the plate, they won't make Ichi-gun. We'll be checking their times."
