Hisashi Iwakuma made an appearance at an event at K's Denki in Sendai on Sunday.  Iwakuma apparently likes electronic appliances and promised fans at the store that he'd work as a store clerk for a day if the team won a championship this year.

Earlier in the day, Iwakuma spent about an hour in the weight room.  After his appearance at K's Denki, he returned Kleenex Stadium to continue his training (he played some catch).

About 1,000 fans showed up for the event.


The Eagles announced on Sunday that 25-year-old Kohei Hasebe filed marriage papers with a 22-year-old woman named Yasuha Kawasaki on the 5th.
