A scuffle between a player and coach during Orix practice

It seems there was a bit of a scuffle during Buffaloes' practice yesterday that involved Ikki Shimamura and infield / base-running coach Hideaki Matsuyama.  According to a number of reports, Matsuyama was egging Ikki on (a fairly common thing in Japan) during fielding practice yesterday and apparently pushed a wrong button as Ikki started shouting back at Matsuyama.  That all culminated in a bunch of players running over to separate the two.

The club responded by saying that there was just a misunderstanding between the two and that other than a warning that was given to Ikki, nothing else was going to be done.
