Hanshin Tigers

Masaki Anada (3rd round) dropped by the Mino city government offices on Wednesday and was named Baseball Ambassador (or Ambassador of the White Ball) by mayor Tetsuro Kurata.

Yomiuri Giants

...agreed to terms with Kosuke Naruse (Ikusei 6th round) today.  Contact 2.4M yen, bonus 2M yen.

The Giants don't plan on giving Hirokazu Sawamura (1st round) any special treatment.  In other words, if he wants to start a Ichi-gun, he'll need to prove to the coaches and Tatsunori Hara that he's ready.

Ryosuke Miyaguni was given the number 30 because the club would like to see him become the next Suguru Egawa.
