13,000 fans visited spring camp today.

The Hawks planned to a host a youth baseball clinic after practice today, but had to cancel because of the rain.  In place of the clinic, they held a autograph session for kids.

The players also threw autographed baseballs into the stands before practices today.  They are scheduled to do something similar on February 11.


The Hawks received thirty kilograms of Ise shrimp and sixty kilograms of katsuo from two Miyazaki (fishery) groups today.


The eight players that were required to attend morning practices today left the team hotel at 7:45am.


5th round draft pick Shinya Kayama faced Tu-Hsuan Lee and 3rd round draft pick Masayoshi Tsukada during batting practice today and allowed three could-be hits.


Takahiro Mahara left the team today in order to get additional testing on his right shoulder.
