Orix Buffaloes News and Notes: December 22, 2010

With the additions of Seung-Yeop Lee and Chan Ho Park, the Buffaloes have started getting more calls from Korea.  In order to account for the potential increase in the Korean fan base, the Buffaloes are apparently considering some of the following ideas:

Providing a portion of their website in Korean.

Putting up signs in Korean around the stadium and having announcements made in Korean.

Merchandising opportunities involving the two players, including special food items (similar to the way the Chiba Lotte Marines started the Kim Chee Tae-Kyung Burger  after Tae-Kyun Kim).

The Buffaloes currently have four practice games scheduled for the month of February.  One of them will apparently be against the Yomiuri Giants -- Akinobu Okada apparently phoned Tatsunori Hara directly to request a practice game.
