The Tigers offer live streams of fall and spring camp workouts through their Tora TV service.  They are thinking about adding a Naruohama stream for fans interested in watching Development Coach Masayuki Kakefu work with Ni-gun players over the course of the season.  The footage could also be used internally when making decisions on promotions.
