Shinji Takahashi and Hirotoshi Kitagawa worked out in Kobe today.

Takahiro Okada apparently got Shigetoshi Hasegawa to be a BP pitcher for his group during their workouts in Los Angeles.

Before leaving for Los Angeles on Thursday, Shunta told reporters he packed a kendama for his overseas workouts.

Shunta saw a TV program during the New Year holiday that mentioned kendama training could help improve focus and usage of the lower body and decided he wanted to give it a try.

Incidentally, Softbank Hawk players Nobuhiro Matsuda and Yuichi Honda appeared in the program as "test subjects."
