Bullpen Sessions / Batting Practice

Hideki Okajima could make his "debut" in an exhibition game against the Yokohama Bay Stars on March 13 after tossing at least one more batting practice.  Okajima was also given the option to pitch against his former team, the Yomiuri Giants, on either March 9 or 10, but opted to skip both because he wants more time to prepare.
