Nippon Ham Fighters

Brian Wolfe was taken off the active roster today because he has not been feeling well -- headaches and dizziness.

Seibu Lions

Two pigeons fell from the sky after fighting with crows at Seibu Dome during Sunday's game against Nippon Ham -- once in the bottom of the 4th with two out and again before the start of the 5th.  Play was temporary paused about five minutes as staff cleared the pigeons from the field.

Softbank Hawks

Yuki Yanagita participated in Ichi-gun pre-game practices today.  Yanagita was taken off the active roster on May 1 with purulent lymphadenitis in his right groin.  The fever and the pain in his right leg went away after a couple of days and he started practicing again on the 4th.  He should be ok to begin playing in Ni-gun games beginning on the 7th.

Orix Buffaloes

Yoshio Itoi was left out of the starting line-up today, most likely to give his right knee a rest -- he banged it up while stealing a base in a game against Lotte on the 3rd.
