In addition to Tomonori Maeda, a number of other veteran players that were working out at Ni-gun camp, including Takahiro Iwamoto, Takaaki Matsumoto, and Yuki Iwami, joined Ichi-gun camp today.

Player/coach Takuro Ishii has been keeping an eye on Shota Dobayashi and Hayato Shoji because like him, they were converted to full-time position players after being pitchers in high school.
