Sponichi reports that Nippon TV is thinking about broadcasting the Rakuten Eagles vs Yomiuri Giants (at Naha) exhibition game that's scheduled for 2/20.

Nippon TV has a connection to Senichi Hoshino via their news program Zero and feel that fan interest for the game will be high since it'll be his first as manager of the Eagles.

If the exhibition game is broadcast via Nippon TV, it'll be just the 4th time an Eagles exhibition game has been broadcast over free terrestrial TV.
