Yamagata Chuo's Naoya Ishikawa did not take part in outdoor practices at Koshien Stadium after he collided into a teammate and suffered a facial fracture under his right eye while chasing down a fly ball during a practice game on Tuesday.  Manager Hideyuki Joji told reporters that based on what doctors told him, there was a good chance he would not be able to participate in the tournament.  Joji does not plan to name a replacement and is prepared to play with seventeen players.
