The Hiroshima Toyo Carp Nichinan Support Group held a welcoming ceremony for the team at Tenpuku Stadium before practices today.  About 300 fans were in attendance.

They also celebrated fifty years of spring camp in Nichinan.


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.
