The All-Japan University team held their final practice session yesterday before leaving for the US today.
As of now, it appears Takahiro Fujioka will be starting the first game of the series. He also tossed about 40 pitches in the bullpen.
The start for the second game of the series could go to Yusuke Nomura.
Pitchers Koji Fukutani and Tomoya Mikami could be used as hitters and worked out with the position players yesterday.
