Orix Buffaloes News and Notes: December 2, 2010

Kazuki Kondo is planning on walking 10 hours in an effort to improve his luck (this will be the second year he does it).

Said Kondo, "I want to switch gears and [walking] is a good way to forget the bad stuff.  I'm going to walk towards luck.  It's a personal power spot."

In other team news:

Keisuke Kaneko will get a number uniform number next season: he'll go from wearing the number 54 to the number 6.  Kaneko will be taking over the number that Naoyuki Omura wore the last two seasons.

Takahiro Okada apparently signed a deal with sports management company Office S.I.C to represent him.

Shinya Nakayama and Makoto Moriyama will be appearing at the Buffaloes' team store in Kobe on the 12th for an autograph session and talk event that begins at 1pm. While the talk event is free, space is limited so the Buffaloes will be handing out guaranteed vouchers to the first 30 fans to make purchases over 2,500 yen.  The autograph session will be closed to the the first 50 fans to purchase either the Bs Nakayama Set or the Bs Moriyama set (2,500 yen value).
