The Niigata Albirex Baseball Club team trainer, Hidetsugu Ohashi, suffered an injury when they accidentally dropped him while tossing him up into the air during celebrations on September 29. Ohashi was taken to the hospital and did not suffer any injuries, but required a one-day stay for observation.
The BC League issued a warning to Niigata on Tuesday because they felt celebrations may have gotten a little out of hand. The league also issued notices to the other teams in the league to exercise a little caution during celebrations to avoid future accidents.
Note: doage = the act of tossing someone up into the air.
