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).
