Spring practice for the Seibu Stadium 2 group ended on Friday (as did fall camp in Miyazaki).
G.G. Sato continued his rehab on Friday and took some grounders in the indoor training facilities at Seibu Stadium 2. Said Sato, "My right elbow is fine, I can throw [ok]. What's left is my left shoulder when I'm swinging the bat. But then I was told my shoulder was going to take some time, so it's something I expected."
The Lions are planning on displaying some Hisanobu Watanabe draft day memorabilia during Fan Appreciation Day. Fans will be able to take a look at things like the actual draft pick box and the winning ticket Watanabe drew.
