The Carp closed out their spring camp in Nichinan today.  Kenjiro Nomura selected Tsubasa Aizawa as his Spring Camp MVP.

Nick Stavinoha has been taking things slow due to tightness in his lower body.  He resumed soft-toss batting practice today and hit twenty baseballs.  Still no timetable on when he will be able to play in games.

Hayato Shoji worked out at the Ono training facilities on Tuesday and spent some time checking over the newly installed artificial turf.  Construction to add the turf began on January 31 and work was completed on February 21.  Cost: about 30M yen.
