This post will be updated throughout the day.


The Ni-gun roster has the day off today.

===== 2/20 @ 9:28pm

Takashi Ogino took about an hour of extra fielding practice today.  He later told reporters that he wanted to be able to attack the ball more aggressively and that he was finally getting comfortable moving around on the field (read: he wasn't getting too worried about re-injuring himself).

Norifumi Nishimura, who also pushed extra fielding practice today as something he wanted everyone to work more on, watched Ogino and said, "He's doing a lot better compared to before.  The fact that he volunteered for extra fielding practice must mean that he's feeling better and making good progress."


Saburo stayed back for about 3 hours of extra batting practice today.

===== 2/20 @ 3:00pm

Makoto Imaoka joined the rest of the team for general practice today.  Imaoka returned to Tokyo on the 10th due to chronic lower back pains.  He then made it back to Ishigaki on the 15th and was working out under a separate training program until today.
