RAK: Senichi Hoshino would like to play a couple games a year in Okinawa

Senichi Hoshino has had a long tie to Okinawa, going back to his days as a player for the Chunichi Dragons.  And to that end, he'd like to give back to the communities that have supported him by playing one or more regular season games a year in Okinawa.  Preferably Okinawa Cellular Stadium Naha, since they have the appropriate facilities to host a proper a night game.


The Eagles decided to send Kohei Hasebe, Tadashi Ishimine, and Yusuke Kusuki down to Ni-gun today in order to participate in the Ikusei League.


The Eagles will be opening up Kleenex Stadium for a public viewing of exhibition games taking place on 3/20 (vs Chunichi at Nagoya Dome) and 3/21 (vs Yomiuri at Tokyo Dome) .  Admission will be free.
