2,938 people, including his parents and the team owner, were on hand to watch Yuki Saito pitch yesterday.  The Fighters also had to open up the outfield section partway through the game in order to accommodate everyone.

Saito told reporters today that he thought he might feel a little tightness / soreness after pitching yesterday, but instead found that he was completely fine.  His workouts today included running, playing catching, and trunk exercises.

Saito next rehab start will likely last 5 innings and be on the 11th against Lotte (at Kamagaya).
