Yokohama announced today that the NPB accepted the team's request to have Brent Leach reinstated, effective the 8th.

Leach also provided the following comment through the Bay Stars:

I'm really grateful to get another chance to play in Japan.  Even after returning to the US, I had thoughts about playing for the Bay Stars.  I made some good friends here during spring camp.  I want to get to Ichi-gun as quickly as I can and do my best to help the team out.

Nikkan Sports is carrying a slightly different quote from Leach:

My wife getting pregnant made me do a lot of thinking.  And I wanted to come back to Yokohama and play.  If I were a fan, I don't think I'd appreciate a player just leaving.  I just feel really bad for what I did. ... From here on, I want to do my best for the team and fans.
