I'll keep this updated throughout the day.


Yomiuri Giants

Six elementary schools kids (in addition to their families) from Namie-machi, Okuama-machi, and Minamisoma, currently taking refuge in Maebashi, were invited to tonight's game against the Yokohama Bay Stars.  The kids also had a chance to meet Takahiro Suzuki and some of the other players on the field before the game.

FYI: Suzuki is from Soma, Fukushima.

Yakult Swallows

Kentaro Kyuko sent Nippon Seishi Ishinomaki (an Industrial league team he played for before turning pro) the game balls from his first victory on 4/24/2011 (vs Hiroshima) and his first exhibition game save from 3/21/2011 (vs Orix).  The two baseballs (in addition to a letter from Kyuko) recently arrived at Nippon Seishi Ishinomaki.
