Nippon Ham Fighters: Junichi Fujii hands out lottery tickets to staff

Nippon Ham Fighters president Junichi Fujii apparently bought 100 lottery tickets (30,000 yen worth out of his own pocket) and handed them out to various staff members as a sign of appreciation for their work.

Said Fujii, "I don't know if anyone will win, but these are consecutively numbered so I'll know if someone does."

Fujii became something of a "good luck" charm after he pulled Yuki Saito's winning lottery ticket during the draft this year (he also pulled the winning lottery ticket for Sho Nakata in 2007).
