Yakult Swallows: Shingo Kawabata, Norichika Aoki leave game early

by on Jul.20, 2011 @ 2:20 am, under NPB

Both Shingo Kawabata and Norichika Aoki left tonight's game early after they fouled baseballs off their legs -- Kawabata of his right calf in the 3rd inning and Aoki off his left foot in the 4th inning.  Neither player was taken to the hospital and the team will take a wait-and-see approach for determining whether or not they'll be able to play tomorrow night.
