Yuki Saito News and Notes: December 26, 2010

The media learned on Saturday that the city of Ota in Gumna is thinking of starting a Yuki Saito Baseball Tournament (for kids).  It seems Yuki Saito is also fully on-board with the idea, since it would allow him to give back to the amateur baseball community and to the city of Ota (Saito's hometown).

It seems the Nippon Ham Fighters are thinking about holding their rookie introduction ceremony (1/16) at Kamagaya Stadium instead of the indoor practice facilities because they're expecting a large turnout for the event.  The indoor practice facilities can only hold about 800 people while the stadium can hold about 2,400 people.
