Sho Nakata wants to become a vocal cheerleader next season.

"[Hichori Morimoto did a good job of keeping] the team in good spirits, and he was easy to talk to," said Nakata.

"That's not really my personality," added Nakata.  "But I'm one of the younger players on the team and I need to be vocal in the dugout.  It's something I'd like to do."

The Fighters are trying to come up with a nickname for Micah Hoffpauir.  Hoffpauir suggested Hoffy, the nickname his teammates in the US used for him.
