This post will be updated throughout the day.

===== 2/25 @ 9:02pm

Norifumi Nishimura sees tomorrow's game against the Nippon Ham Fighters as the perfect opportunity for the younger Lotte players to get their names out to the public (a large crowd is expected since Yuki Saito will probably pitch).

Ishimine is slated to start in right and bat 9th.


The Marines announced Yoshihisa Naruse's Happy Family Seats (家族だんらんシート) today.

===== 2/25 @ 3:24pm

Shota Ishimine (1st round) told reporters yesterday that he felt his hitting improved the most during spring camp.


The Marines decided yesterday that they'll send Bob McCrory down to Ni-gun after the 27th.  The Marines shut McCrory down (no throwing) towards the end of spring camp because of tightness in his body, most likely due to fatigue.
