Yakult Swallows: February 22, 2012

The Swallows' practice game against the Yomiuri Giants was rained out today.

===

The Swallows decided to send Kazuki Fukuchi back down to Ni-gun tomorrow after he was diagnosed with a minor strain in his right calf.

===

Kyohei Nakamura, Tatsuyoshi Masubuchi, Yoshinori Sato, and Katsuki Akagawa will be sponsoring eight seats (two a piece) along the first base side this season.  Additional details will be posted at the official team site when they become available.

===

Junji Ogawa told reporters on Tuesday that there was a chance Shingo Kawabata will not be ready for the start of the season.  Kawabata suffered a TFCC injury in his left hand and has been rehabbing at Ni-gun camp.  His recovery is taking longer than originally planned (he just recently started taking fielding practice) and the cold weather has not helped.

The Swallows announced the Domino's Pair Ticket pack today (two tickets + one medium-sized Domino's pizza for 7,400 yen).  The packs will go on sale beginning on March 3.
