Intra-squad Game info move here.

===

Taketoshi Goto is the sixth person in the organization to catch the flu since the start of spring camp.

===

Norihiro Akahoshi gave Takehiro Ishikawa, Sho Aranami, and Takayuki Kajitani tips on how to steal bases on Friday.

===

Kiyoshi Nakahata told Kimiyasu Kudo he was more than welcome to watch games from the dugout, so long as he became a team advisor.  The invite may not have been serious, but Kudo did tell reporters he was interested in doing what he could to help the team get better.

===

Nakahata does not plan to watch intra-squad games from within the dugout because he is not on either team and will instead catch the games from a more neutral area in the stadium.  He also likes Aranami as a lead-off hitter.

During today's game, watched the game from a number of different locations, including the camera well in foul territory.

Nakahata also grabbed the mic and greeted fans during the team's lunch break today.

===

The players sang Nakahata's cheer song during their team run on Friday.  Daisuke Miura, Yamamoto, and Hitoshi Fujie were the players the set the idea into motion.

===

Intra-squad games are expected to last six innings.

===

About 1,000 fans were in the stands on Friday.  There were also about 1,000 fans in the stand today.

Batting Practice Bullpen Sessions

Thursday

  • Alex Ramirez took fifty-two swings during BP and collected twenty-three could-be hits, including one that went over the fence. (Sponichi)

Friday

  • Daisuke Miura threw 171 pitches in the bullpen. (Sanspo)

===

The Bay Stars announced today that Taketoshi Goto was diagnosed with influenza A earlier today.

===

Kimiyasu Kudo visited spring camp in Ginowan today and observed practices.  He also had a chance to meet with Kiyoshi Nakahata, but not GM Shigeru Takada, who was also at Ginowan today.

===

Nakahata had to walk to the stadium on Thursday because the battery in the team car died.  So the trip to the stadium that usually takes two minutes by car, took about twenty-two minutes by foot.  And along the way, he was surrounded by fans seeking photos and autographs.

===

Otsuka Tea Manufacturing Company in Kakegawa, Shizuoka sent the team some "Kiyoshi" tea on Thursday.

====== 2/11 @ 2:02am

The Bay Stars stole just thirty-one bases last year.  Nakahata would like the team to aim for at least 100 this year.

===

The team has been placing nets along the base paths so players can work on running the bases in somewhat realistic conditions without any worries about getting hit by baseballs.

===

Taketoshi Goto was excused from practices today because he was not feeling wellYuki Yoshimura returned to practices today after missing a couple days because of a cold.

===

Kiyoshi Nakahata tried to give pitchers Shugo Fujii, Hiroshi Kobayashi, Yuki Kuniyoshi, Kentaro Takasaki, Hitoshi Fujie, and Yota Kosugi a fielding workout on Wednesday, but had trouble remembering their names and making good contact with the baseballs.  The players, in turn, playfully jeered back at Nakahata.

Nakahata also spent some time giving Yoshitomo Tsutsugo hitting advice on Wednesday and later told reporters he did not mind if Tsutsugo forgot everything he said because it was important for players to understand and accept idea; nothing should be forced.  He would, however, like Tsutsugo to smile a little more when he does well.

====== UPDATE 2/10 @ 1:43am

Nakahata hit sixty baseballs to the six pitchers he worked with on Wednesday.
