Practice was moved indoors today due to the rain.  The A group (Ichi-gun) held practice indoors beginning at 9:30am.  The B group (Ni-gun) began their practices after the A group finished.

Ayatsugu Yamashita (1st round) was invited to Ichi-gun practice for one day today and was disappointed about the rain.  During practice, Yamashita showed off his throwing arm (from catch to throw, about 1.8 seconds).

Tadashi Settsu threw about 60 pitches in the bullpen today.  Yamashita caught the session.

The Hawks feel that Yuki Yanagita (2nd round) may need some more polish on his approach to fielding baseballs.
