Training camp for the 2011 draft class started at the Ono training facilities today.  Workouts lasted about four hours and included running and playing catch.

The players also had a chance to meet veteran Tomonori Maeda.


Yuya Fukui's workouts this month have started at 10am and ended at 4pm.  He has also already tossed BP (while mixing in off-speed pitches) to Yasuyuki Kataoka (SEI).  Fukui will continue his practices at the Tokyo Gas training facilities until 1/21 before heading to Okinawa on 1/24.


Tomonori Maeda worked out for about five hours at the Ono training facilities in Hatsukaichi, Hiroshima on Wednesday.  His workouts included playing catch, soft toss BP, and fielding practice.


Kenta Maeda's new wife has a license as a Dietary Life Advisor and has been giving Maeda tips on what kinds of foods to eat.
