    What papers have to be in order? I thought all of that had to be done before you enter the country.That means he can’t even play in Ni-Gun games until mid-June?

      From what I can tell, his work visa hasn’t cleared yet. He may have entered the country as a tourist. Or maybe there’s a temporary visa they issue. I’m not really sure how it works with ball players.

      BTW: I just noticed I made a mistake in the update. I fixed it (“until” was originally “once”). So he will practice in Kobe _until_ the papers clear. He can practice, just not play in any games.
