The Tigers held a physical fitness test for all 8 of their 2010 draft players at Koshien Stadium earlier today. Afterward, the players were given a tour of the stadium and of the Naruohama training grounds. Shinta Hifumi (2nd round) managed 16 pull-ups.
Swallows' manager Junji Ogawa had the following three bits of advice for Hirokazu Sawamura (1st round): don't forget to say your hellos; focus on baseball; don't forget what it was like when you first started playing. Ogawa and Sawamura are both Chuo University alumni.
