Headlines from 12/5/2011:

  • The Bay Stars are considering Tadakatsu Kotani for a coaching position with the team.  They are also thinking about making current Ichi-batting coach Yoshikazu Takagi their new Ni-gun manager.  If that happens, current Ni-gun manager Kazuyuki Shirai could be given a position at the Ichi-gun level.
  • The media learned on Sunday that the Bay Stars will be announcing that they hired Shigeru Takada as GM some time today.
  • Sponichi notes that Takada is pushing for the front office (GM-centric) to have main control over the team.  To that end, owner Makoto Haruta will also have GM responsibilities.
