Nippon Ham Fighters: January 18, 2012

by on Jan.18, 2012 @ 11:27 pm, under NPB

The second block of training camp for the 2011 draft class ended today.


5th round draft pick Toshiharu Moriuchi tossed 30 pitches in the bullpen on Tuesday (he also switched to pitching out of the set position after his 20th pitch).  If he makes it to the active roster, there is a good chance it will be as a reliever.


The media learned on Tuesday that Kensuke Tanaka (30) is in a serious relationship (marriage is in the cards) with Sapporo TV reporter Chiho Nishimori (26).


Mayor Masahito Nishikawa sent the Nippon Ham Fighters a letter of appreciation for their 200M yen donation to help promote sports in Asahikawa City.
