The Hawks announced today that they are hoping to make Yahoo Dome Japan's cleanest stadium with their Hawks Clean Up Project.  Amongst some of the things they have planned: an ECO station where fans can separate their trash into papers cups, PET bottles, and burnable waste; and bottle cap collection boxes.  The project will begin on the 11th.

Chiba Lotte Marines

Ikuhiro Kiyota has his eyes on a return some time in August.  He dropped by QVC Marine Field today to give Norifumi Nishimura an update on his condition.

Takuya Takahama was taken off the active roster today due to poor performance (10 G, 5-for-27, .185/.185/.222).
