The Ichi-gun Giants closed out the Miyazaki portion of their spring camp schedule and traveled to Okinawa today.  Nikkan Sports has posted a list of players heading to Okinawa camp.

===

Hisayoshi Chono missed today's exhibition game against the Hiroshima Carp due to tightness in his lower back.  He was allowed to travel with the team to Okinawa today since his back problems do not appear to be serious.

Shigeo Nagashima feels Ryosuke Miyaguni is a player to watch out for.  And Nagashima told Miyaguni on Friday not to worry about his delivery so much and to just throw the ball.

Nagashima observed Giants' camp again today.

====== UPDATE 2/19 @ 2:35am

The Giants arrived at Naha Airport at 11:39pm, about two hours later than initially scheduled.  Despite the delay, over 200 fans greeted the team at the airport.
