The Marines announced that they'll be handing out bath salts (spa salts) to the first 15,000 fans (10,000 depending on circumstances) during Inter-league series home games this season.  The bath salts will change based on the opponent's team colors (for example: Hanshin will be grapefruit).

Rakuten Eagles

Hirotada Ototake will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch on the 6th (vs Seibu).  The Eagles will also be handing out caps to the first 1,000 kids to the stadium (elementary school and under) for games between the 6th and 8th.
