Kenta Maeda was fined by the Hiroshima Carp yesterday for breaking curfew.
Gossip magazine Friday is carrying a story that says Maeda spent the night with Nana Aihara on the 17th and returned to the team hotel the following day. The Carp questioned Maeda that day and issued a stern warning and a fine for breaking curfew (all players are expected back at the hotel at midnight).
After practice, Maeda told reporters he was sorry for his actions and that he picked a bad time to go on a date.
Team organizer Satoshi Miyawaki said, "He's an adult and we don't care about his love life. But, we have a curfew that everyone on the team must obey."
