The infield seat sections (first and third base side) at Jingu Stadium could be getting a bit of a face-lift for the 2011 season.  The new area will apparently be reserved for two types of new seats: Family Seats (3 to 5 seats) and Couple Seats (2 seats).


Norichika Aoki apparently has close to 20/20 vision (no contacts, no glasses).  Throughout the course of the season, it seems there are times where he needs to spend some times with his eyes shut after games due to eye strain.  According to Sanspo, he's hoping to relax his eyes (by looking up at the starry sky at night) while he works out in his hometown (Hyuga, Miyazaki) during the winter.


Yoshinori Sato moved from his old room on the 3rd floor to his new room on the 5th floor in the player dorms on Tuesday.  In the process of moving, he noticed that his mobile phone wasn't get good reception from his new room.  NTT apparently heard Yoshinori's complaint and have already started moving toward looking into the problem.
