Seibu Lions Spring Camp News and Notes: February 10, 2011

by on Feb.10, 2011 @ 3:45 pm, under NPB

This post will be updated throughout the day.


The Lions' Ni-gun roster has the day off today.

===== 2/10 @ 10:12pm

Kazuhisa Makita (2nd round) threw 303 pitches in the bullpen today.  He later told reporters that he felt he could have thrown a little more.  Ryoma Nogami also threw over 300 pitches in the bullpen.


Hideaki Wakui threw 21 pitches (all fastballs) to a squatting catcher during his bullpen session today.  It was the first time Wakui had the catcher sit during his spring camp bullpen sessions.  And assuming the weather holds up, Wakui is also scheduled to toss situational BP on the 13th.

===== 2/10 @ 3:45pm

Eiji Wentz (member of J-Pop band WaT) visited Nango camp today -- he's apparently a big fans of the Lions and is close to players like Fumiya Nishiguchi and Hideaki Wakui.


G.G. Sato has been riding his Cinelli bicycle between the team hotel and stadium during spring camp (about a 10 minute ride).
