Chunichi Dragons: M. Yamamoto hoping new NBP baseball will revive his screwball

Masahiro Yamamoto is hoping to bring his screwball back to life with the new NPB regulation baseball next season.  The new regulation baseball is apparently similar to the one Yamamoto used when he first picked up the pitch (that supposedly happened back when he spent some time working out with the single-A Dodgers in 1987) and has him thinking that he'll be able to throw the pitch the way it's supposed to be thrown, with the movement it's supposed to have.

The Dragons held their year-end meeting / gathering earlier today in a Nagoya hotel.
