Yomiuri Giants: February 28, 2012

by on Feb.28, 2012 @ 11:49 pm, under NPB

The Giants closed out spring camp in Miyazaki today.


Through Monday, Ryosuke Miyaguni has not allowed a run over seven innings of work (three games).

Miyaguni's parents visited camp on Sunday and were apparently a little concerned at how worn out their son looked looked during practices.


Tatsunori Hara was upset about two plays Daisuke Fujimura and Taishi Ota were involved in during Monday's practice game against the SK Wyverns:

  • Fujimura failed to make a strong/accurate cut-off throw to home plate in the 1st inning, allowing one (possibly two) runs to score.
  • Ota did not charge a fly ball in the 2nd inning.

====== UPDATE 2/29 @ 1:11am

A libel case involving Hayato Sakamoto and a Shukan Asahi Geino article from June 16, 2011 ended peacefully with a formal written apology by the editor-in-chief in exchange for dropping the damage claims against Tokuma Shoten (publisher).
