The Yokohama Bay Stars are apparently leaning towards allowing all five of their foreign players (Brent Leach, Clayton Hamilton, Brandon Mann, Brett Harper, and Terrmel Sledge) to return home to US.  It the players are showing signs of emotional distress and would like time to return to their families.

All five players ended their practice sessions in the morning to get their things together.  They will most likely leave within the next couple of days.

UPDATE @ 8:20pm - the players will probably leave later tonight and will return on the 22nd.

Brent Leach started a practice game against the Samsung Lions today and tossed 3 shutout innings while giving up 1 hit.  Clayton Hamilton followed and gave up a run (on a solo homer) over 2 innings of work.  Brandon Mann entered the game in the 6th and had a rough going, walk three batters and then giving up a grand slam.  Futoshi Kobayashi (2 innings) and Shun Yamaguchi (1 inning) did not allow any runs to score over the final 3 frames of the game.

On offense, Keijiro Matsumoto collected a bit 2-run double to left-center in the 7th that tied the game at 5.  And Noriharu Yamazaki came through with the game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the 9th with runners on first and second and 2 out.

Final Score: Bay Stars 6 - Lions 5
