Hanshin Tigers

The Tigers invited survivors of the March 11 earthquake / tsunami (kids playing for a soft baseball team from Iwaki, Fukushima that won a national tournament last year and elementary kids from the Tohoku area taking refuge in the Kansai area) to their game at Koshien Stadium today.  After the game, 9 Tigers (including Takashi Toritani, Ryota Arai, Kohei Shibata, and Shunsuke) met with the kids at their indoor training facilities.

Yomiuri Giants

The Giants announced today that they managed to collect 14,296,814 yen between 3/14 and 6/19.  Of that, 4,001,306 was collected solely at Tokyo Dome (17 games).
