===== 2/16 @ 4:45pm

The Buffaloes announced today that Chan Ho Park was given permission to return to Tokyo last night for personal reasons.  He is expected to return to practice on the 17th.


Akinobu Okada was impressed by Shunta Goto's (1st round) intra-squad performance yesterday (3-for-3 with a stolen base).  Seems he also earned the chance to play in some of the 4 practice games they have scheduled between 2/19 and 2/22.
