Hiroshima Carp: January 13, 2011

by on Jan.14, 2012 @ 1:48 am, under NPB

The second day of training camp for the 2011 draft class included playing catch and weight training.


For the fifth year in a row, Yoshiyuki Ishihara performed Goma meditations with Takahiro Arai (HAN) on Thursday.


A Chinese prisoner (Li Guolin) escaped from Hiroshima Prison on Wednesday (he was back in custody on Friday).  Mazda Stadium is about 5km away from the prison; the Ni-gun Ono training facilities about 22km away.  Concerned about the safety of their staff, the team cautioned everyone to remain vigilant (do not walk around alone, make sure all doors/windows are locked, etc).  A photo of the fugitive was also posted in the security room to make sure guards knew whom to look out for.  The outer games at the player dorm were also locked at 10:30pm.

FYI: there are 77 security cameras outside the areas around Mazda Stadium.
