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).
