Hanshin Tigers

Atsushi Nomi worked out (like playing catch and running dashes) with the pitchers at Koshien Stadium today.  He is scheduled to start tomorrow's game against the Hiroshima Carp (at Hotto Motto).  Nomi will be looking to stop the team's current 3-game losing streak.

Yomiuri Giants

Alex Ramirez's 17-year-old son (who goes by the same name) is currently a member of the Kobe Suns (KANDOK league).  Ramirez visited that son today in Hyogo.

Yakult Swallows

The Swallows worked out at Ishikawa Stadium today for about 2 hours.  Players like Masanori Ishikawa, Yoshinori Sato, and Shinya Miyamoto took part in the practice.

Ishikawa (the pitcher) will once again be shooting for his 100th career victory (2nd attempt).
