Senichi Hoshino will be getting a lot of airtime on Tohoku TV stations next month.  He'll be making an appearance on Sendai TV on 1/22 and could then make appearances on Miyagi TV, NHK, KHB, and TBC on 1/24.


Team owner / president Toru Shimada response to NPB Commissioner Ryozo Kato's thoughts about requiring all clubs to have home stadiums that can seat at least 30,000:

I know about the NPB is struggling financially.  But considering our current financial situation, it simply isn't possible for us to make [Kleenex Stadium] a 30,000 seat [park].  And we've explained this to them.


The Eagles recently announced on Wednesday that Tadashi Sugimoto was joining the staff as a pro scout.
