Nippon Ham Fighters

  • Kensuke Kondo got to catch a little in the Lotte game on September 30. It was his first game as a catcher since July 4. If Kondo can catch, it opens up the designated hitter slot for another player, possibly Shohei Otani. Source: Nikkan Sports 10/1/2015

Rakuten Eagles

  • The Eagles will attempt to convert the turf at kobo Stadium to natural grass for the 2016 season. They also plan to add "park seats" in left-center to push total seating capacity over 30,000 and renew the scoreboard in center. Source: Nikkan Sports 10/1/2015, Sponichi 10/1/2015
