Kazuhisa Makita rejoined the rest of the players for general practices today (returning from the flu).  His workouts included playing catch, running, and fielding practice.


Hideaki Wakui told reporters he tossed his bullpen session today at about 60%.  He also said he felt pressured into the session by the coaches because he was the last pitcher that had yet to toss one.


2nd round draft pick Hirotaka Koishi told reporters on Saturday that he will not write haikus until he records his first victory and gets a hero interview.


NPB Commissioner Ryozo Kato visited the Seibu Lions today.
