Daisuke Fujimura and Daijiro Tanaka worked out at Giants Stadium today.  They spent about 3 hours fielding grounders, taking BP, and lifting weights.  Fujimura is expected to join Hayato Sakamoto and Shinnosuke Abe on their training excursion to Guam in January.


Tetsuya Utsumi has added PNF stretches to his workouts this winter after Yuya Kubo found it to be helpful with his own training this year.  Hideki Matsui turned to PNF stretches back he used to play for the Yomiuri Giants.


Abe visited a social welfare center in Urayasu, Chiba on Friday.  Abe donated 440,000 yen (10,000 yen per home run he hit in 2010) to Urayasu this year.

Said Abe, "Everyone's looking forward to seeing me and they also give me power as well.  I'd like to do my best so that I can donate about the same amount next year.
