After watching Nobuhiro Matsuda take soft-toss batting practice and deposit the ball over the fence a number of times today, batting coach Yoshiie Tachibana took some swings of his own and managed to hit one over on his twenty-fifth swing.


Duskin presented the Hawks with 300 donuts from Mister Donut today.


Hiroyuki Kawahara is scheduled to start Saturday's exhibition game against the Hiroshima Carp.


The Hawks currently have twenty pitchers at Ichi-gun camp and will drop that down to between twelve and thirteen.
