The Fighters had the day off today.


The Fighters announced today that they added another practice game to their schedule: February 27 at 1pm vs Samsung Lions at Nago Stadium.


7th round draft pick Takumi Oshima moved into the Ichi-gun player hotel today and will most likely begin workout at Ichi-gun camp tomorrow.  There is a good chance he will play in Wednesday's practice game against the SK Wyverns.

5th round draft pick Toshiharu Moriuchi and Masaru Saito also moved into the Ichi-gun player hotel on Monday.


Through Monday, 7th round draft pick Oshima is 6-for-16 over eight practice games.  On Sunday, he also struck out in consecutive at bats for the first time in his career (including softball career).
