Masahiko Morino agreed to maintain his position as chief player rep of the team during the Dragons' golf and final meeting / gathering of the year event earlier today.


Kazuyuki Akasaka is working on becoming a position player.  As part of that conversion, Akasaka is returning to the club under an Ikusei contract next season.  On Sunday, he spent about 2 hours at Nagoya Stadium working out.

Said Akasaka, "I'd like to practice.  But it's hard to face live pitching [during the off-season].  It's difficult to seek the help of older pitchers, so I'll try to ask a young pitcher.  I'll ask if they can pitch some balls to me at 50-60%."
