The Buffaloes left Kochi on Sunday and traveled to Kansai.


Chihiro Kaneko, Yuki Nishi, and Evan MacLane worked out at Hotto Motto Kobe today.  Kaneko is scheduled to pitch against the Yakult Swallows on Tuesday (three innings); Nishi against the Yokohama Bay Stars on Wednesday.


The Buffaloes made some changes to the fences at Kyocera Dome: they installed new padding in the outfield and behind home plate that is made up of a higher quality soft rubber material for player safety; and they changed the color of the fence from aqua blue to their team color, water navy.
