Eishi Soyogi will not be heading to Okinawa camp with the rest of the Ichi-gun players on the 21st.  He joined Ichi-gun camp on the 15th but will return to Ni-gun camp on the 21st.  Coaches are concerned about Soyogi's knees and would like him to focus on rehab and strengthening for the rest of the month.

A fire alarm on the first floor of Nichinan Tempuku Baseball Stadium went off at around 9:30am on Friday.  It ended up being a false alarm.  A stadium official told reporters that the alarm may have gone off when someone using the first floor kitchen forgot to turn on the exhaust fans while using the stove.
