Hanshin Tigers: February 19, 2012

by on Feb.19, 2012 @ 11:49 pm, under NPB

Today was the last day of the fourth block of spring camp.  The team has the day off tomorrow.


Twenty-one players stayed back at Ginoza camp today and continued their workouts while the other played the Yomiuri Giants.


Kyuji Fujikawa worked on his slide-step in the bullpen today and managed to shave off about 0.05 seconds by dropping his glove down to waist level instead of up near his chest.

Fujikawa also requested that every pitcher spend some time on improving their slide-steps.


Kenji Jojima started at first and batted fifth against the Yomiuri Giants today.  It was his first game since 6/5/2011.
