The Nippon Ham Fighters apparently sold ten 280,000 yen season ticket packs (Bronze Seats located behind home plate) during Hokkaido Cultural Broadcasting's (UHB) TV show, Noriyuki-no Talk de Hokkaido on Wednesday.  According to UHB, 2.8M yen worth of tickets sold out in less than 10 minutes.

"When we first got this proposal, we still weren't sure where Yuki Saito was going," said UHB.  "As luck would have it, club president Junichi Fujii pulled the winning ticket.  I guess there are shoppers that were able to decide on purchasing the 280,000 yen tickets very quickly."

When the Fighters heard about how quickly the tickets sold out, they said they should have prepared more.


A book written by Yuki Saito's mother, title Spread your Wings, Yuki (はばたけ、佑樹) has been selling so well that a second printing has already been announced.

The first print of the books hit store shelves on 11/30 and consisted of 10,000 copies.


Nippon Ham stock was trading for 928 yen on 11/2.  On 12/22, that same stock is up to 1,078 yen.
