Orix Buffaloes: February 1, 2012

by on Feb.01, 2012 @ 11:59 pm, under NPB

A welcoming ceremony, hosted by the Miyakojima Orix Camp Support Group, was held before the start of practices this morning.


Dae-Ho Lee weighed in at over 140kg this winter but managed to lose 15kg.  He currently weighs 127kg, which is close to his ideal weight of 130kg.

Lee did not have any difficulties at first during situational fielding practice.


Not really directly team related but...  Miyakojima Mamoru-kun's sister, Miykojima Maruko, made her debut in August 2011.


Batting practice:


Lee took seventy-two swings and hit three over the fence.  He also hit forty-five could-be hits.


Takahiro Okada took fifty-nine swings and hit nine over the fence.
