I have managed to sign a contract with the Nippon Ham Fighters.  I am honored to have this chance to play for such a wonderful team.  I have wanted to play in Japan for quite some time and now I have attained that dream.  I will do my best as a member of the Fighters.  I am prepared to give it my all to help them win a championship next year.  I have heard great things about this team and its fans from my friend Michel Abreu.  I hope we can anchor the line-up together next season and drive in some runs.
