Tomokazu Oka said the following during early morning shouting exercises today:

I think people will make fun of you if you say Yokohama can win a championship.  When I said I wanted to play in the majors, a lot said it wouldn't happen.  But, I gave it my best.  And if you have goal and work hard towards that goal, I think you'll attain it.  I want to do my best to win a championship.


Takao Obana made his rounds during the first day of camp and tried to talk to as many players as possible.  He spent the morning with the position players and moved to the bullpen in the afternoon.
