All seven member of the 2011 draft class moved into the player dorm today.

1st round draft pick Yoshitaka Muto told reporters his goal was to make it to Ichi-gun and pitch at Sapporo Dome.

2nd round draft pick Yoshinao Kamata wants to work hard so that when people think of the number 21, they think of him (21 is Hisashi Iwakuma's old number).

The Eagles will give 3rd round draft pick Takumi Miyoshi a look as an infielder.
