Softbank Hawks

The Hawks have posted a list of commemorative merchandise celebrating Hiroki Kokubo's 2,000th hit.  They are also planning a giveaway (pin badge) and a special ticket pack (t-shirt).

Nippon Ham Fighters

Yuki Saito plans to check watch over footage of his delivery to see if there is something he can do to keep runners from stealing bases on him.  Runners stole two bases on Saito last season over nineteen games.  This year, they have stolen eight in thirteen games.  Source: Sponichi 6/24/2012

Seibu Lions

Sponichi notes that Hideaki Wakui is dressing differently (a little more conservative) -- he wore a cardigan over a white t-shirt on Friday and a white collared oxford on Saturday.

Orix Buffaloes

Chihiro Kaneko (right elbow) will most likely remain on the active roster and could get a start as early as June 29 (vs Lotte at Kyocera Dome).  Source: Daily Sports 6/24/2012
