Intra-squad Game info move here.

Taketoshi Goto is the sixth person in the organization to catch the flu since the start of spring camp.

===

Norihiro Akahoshi gave Takehiro Ishikawa, Sho Aranami, and Takayuki Kajitani tips on how to steal bases on Friday.

===

Kiyoshi Nakahata told Kimiyasu Kudo he was more than welcome to watch games from the dugout, so long as he became a team advisor.  The invite may not have been serious, but Kudo did tell reporters he was interested in doing what he could to help the team get better.

===

Nakahata does not plan to watch intra-squad games from within the dugout because he is not on either team and will instead catch the games from a more neutral area in the stadium.  He also likes Aranami as a lead-off hitter.

During today's game, watched the game from a number of different locations, including the camera well in foul territory.

Nakahata also grabbed the mic and greeted fans during the team's lunch break today.

===

The players sang Nakahata's cheer song during their team run on Friday.  Daisuke Miura, Yamamoto, and Hitoshi Fujie were the players the set the idea into motion.

===

Intra-squad games are expected to last six innings.

===

About 1,000 fans were in the stands on Friday.  There were also about 1,000 fans in the stand today.
