Hanshin Tigers

Shinta Hifumi (2nd round) will be visiting the Junior Hawks (Boys League baseball team in Sakai, Osaka that Hifumi once played for) on 1/4.

Nippon Ham Fighters

The Fighters are apparently thinking about giving some of their younger players lessons / lectures (at a pace of about one per month) on famous people from various backgrounds outside of baseball.  For Yuki Saito (1st round), they're currently considering a lesson on famous actor Yuji Ishihara.  Other famous people the club is thinking about: chemist and Nobel Prize Laureate (2010) Akira Suzuki and enka singer Saburo Kitajima.
