The Swallows had the day off today.

A number of players, including Tsuyoshi Ueda, Tetsuto Yamada, Hiroyasu TanakaOrlando Roman, and Masayoshi Miwa, worked out on their day off today.

===

Yoshinori Sato was only planning to throw fifty pitches in the bullpen on Tuesday.

"[I threw more] because my pitching improved after we got someone to stand in the batter's box," said Yoshinori.  "I was able to get a good grip on the ball and throw it well.  I have no worries at all."

===

Tsuyoshi Ueda is so far 5-for-9 with one stolen base over two practice games.

Yoshinori led he team with about 200 Valentine's presents, followed by Shingo Kawabata (about 120) and Ryoji Aikawa (about 90).
