Note: This article originally noted Tomokazu Oka as retiring when in fact it is Atsushi Kizuka retiring.  This was a fault of my own as I rushed through the headline and carelessly misread the kanji for Kizuka (木塚) as Oka (大家).  I didn't realize the problem until after I read a separate article that also carried a picture of Kizuka.  My apologies for any confusion this may have caused.

It seems the Yokohama Bay Stars are leaning toward leaving Atsushi Kizuka (YOK) out of their plans for the 2011 season.  The team could inform Kizuka of their decision sometime on or after the end of the Ni-gun season on the 19th.
