Tsuyoshi Wada, Toshiya Sugicuhi, D.J. Houlton, and Hiroki Yamada worked out at Yahoo Dome today. Wada will likely start tomorrow's game against the Yomiuri Giants.
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.
