This post will be updated with information as it becomes available so keep checking back if you have any interest in Yuki Saito.
===== 3/2 @ 11:54pm
The Yokohama Bay Stars are already thinking ahead to their exhibition game against the Fighters on the 13th. Since there's a good chance Saito could end up pitching on that day, the Bay Stars are already thinking about beefing up stadium security.
===== 3/2 @ 11:10pm
Saito topped out at 144km/h. Both his parents were also at the game. Saito's next outing will be in an exhibition game against they Yomiuri Giants on 3/6.
===== 3/2 @ 10:29pm
Saito was called for his first balk in the 6th inning with Aoki up to bat and Kawashima on first.
===== 3/2 @ 9:17pm
5th inning - Kazuhiro Hatakeyama: fly out to center, Ryoji Aikawa: fly out to right, Yasushi Iihara: ground out to the pitcher.
6th inning - Keizo Kawashima: single to right, Aaron Guiel: fly out to left, Norichika Aoki: ground out to short, Hiroyasu Tanaka: ground out to second.
Saito - "It was my first time on the Sapporo Dome mound, but I was able to keep my composure and I felt great pitching. I also had a much better handle of my fastball than back when I was in Okinawa. I think I did alright."
===== 3/2 @ 8:52am
And it seems tickets for Field Seats on the first and third base side and Family Seats are already sold out.
Incidentally, Norichika Aoki will be in the line-up today -- he was hit by a pitch on the right shoulder during an exhibition game on 2/26 but is ok to play. Saito was supposed to pitch against the Yakult Swallows during a practice game in Nago, Okinawa on 2/20 but couldn't due to stomach problems. In the end, it didn't really matter since the game ended up getting rained out.
