Sho Nakata worked out in the evening on Monday -- he spent about an hour taking BP in the cages.  Earlier in the day, Nakata was late in getting to the team bus out of Kamagaya.  When he finally arrived, he had a mobile phone in one hand, his necktie and belt in the other, and was about 4 minutes late.  No explanation is given in the reports, it seems he just woke up late.  Something he also got in trouble for in 2008 and 2009.
