Hideki Matsui tossed batting practice at Staten Island on Saturday. From Newsday's Marcus Henry:
Matsui, who threw 120 pitches during a BP session for the Yankees' New York-Penn League Class A affiliate on Staten Island, enjoyed helping the players, but he has no commitment with the Yankees and has no plans to manage.
"No, not really," Matsui replied through interpreter Roger Kahlon when asked if he wants to run a major-league team. "This opportunity just came about and just kind of happened. That's really it. There's nothing more beyond this."
"We just introduced ourselves. That's about it," Matsui said of his interaction with the players. "But hopefully, I'll do well enough so they'll want me to come back."

Matsui faced ten batters and threw 122 pitches over about ten minutes.
He is also scheduled to toss batting practice at Staten Island on Monday and Tuesday.
