Yuya Hasegawa did some running in the morning with the 2011 draft class today.  In the afternoon, he did his own thing and spent some time taking BP (in the cages and soft-toss).

===

Hiroki Yamada has been taking in 6,000 kilocalories per dinner since his training camp in Miyazaki began on 1/6.  Over that span he has managed to add 3kg to his frame and now weighs 95kg.

One-day intake example: all you can eat buffet for breakfast; two lunch boxes, one with a variety of vegetables and the other with three rice balls for lunch; three grilled chicken pieces about the size of a hand, a bowlful of spinach, and a plateful of meat and potatoes for dinner.

===

Kenji Akashi, Keisuke Kaneko, Kenta Imamiya, Shuhei Fukuda, and 3rd round draft pick Masayoshi Tsukada could be amongst the players competing for the starting job at short (Munenori Kawasaki's old position).

===

The media learned on Wednesday that Yuichi Honda will be a spokesperson (Kansai Region) for Asahi Beer.  A commercial featuring Honda will be shot some time later this month. Ads will pop up pretty much everywhere, including TV, radio, the big screen at Yahoo Dome, various big screens throughout Kansai, posters, and fliers, beginning in March.

Softbank Hawks: Uchikawa, Hasegawa to get new uniforms numbers

The Softbank Hawks announced today that Seiichi Uchikawa and Yuya Hasegawa will receive new uniform numbers for the 2012 season.

Uchikawa from 24 to 1

It makes me a little sad to move away from the number 24, the first number I got when I started playing youth baseball and the number I wore during the WBC.  But I also want to be number 1 when it comes to hitting and I want to take on even more responsibilities next season so I decided to accept the number.  I feel pressure with this number because players like [Koji] Akiyama and [Hiroshi] Shibahara have worn it in the past.  I would like to make sure I do not become an embarrassment to the number.

Hasegawa from 30 to 24

I have a connection to the number 24 because I used wear it when I was in college.  Ever since I joined the team, I made it my goal to become the kind of player that could wear the number 24.  I finally got my wish with [Seiichi] Uchikawa's uniform number change, but I am sure Hawks' fans will still see him when they think of the number.  I will do my best to change that as soon as possible.

Softbank Hawks: Yuya Hasegawa appears to be ok

Yuya Hasegawa (SOF) was the starting center fielder in a Phoenix League game against Nippon Ham on Tuesday.

Hasegawa was hit by a pitch in the head on Sunday and the team was concerned he might miss a significant amount of practice time before the Final Stage (there were also some worries that he might even miss some or all of the Final Stage).

On Tuesday, Hasegawa was back in the starting line-up and appeared to be ok -- he went 1-for-3 with a walk, didn't seem to have any difficulties on defense, and even tried to steal second after his single in the 5th.

In other team-related news:

The Softbank Hawks' Pacific League victory parade will take place in Fukuoka on 11/20 (this is for taking first place in the PL).

Yuya Hasegawa to miss Final Stage due to HBP to head?

It appears the Softbank Hawks want to play it safe with Yuya Hasegawa after an HBP to the head on Sunday.  While nothing is known for sure at this point, it isn't out of the realm of possibility that he'll miss some postseason games.  What the Hawks will most likely do is take things day by day.

For now, it seems there are essentially three possibilities for Hasegawa: 1) he'll be fine and manage to get some practice in before the start of the Final Stage, 2) the Hawks will decide he needs more rest and won't get any practice in before the start of the Final Stage, 3) out of concern for his health, he missed some / all of the Final Stage.

Yuya Hasegawa ok after getting hit by a pitch in the head

Yuya Hasegawa was hit by a pitch in the head during a Phoenix League game against the Yomiuri Giants earlier today and was rushed to a hospital.

The HBP to the head came in Hasegawa's first at bat in the 2nd inning with Takanobu Tsujiuchi on the mound for the Giants.

Hasegawa was conscious after getting hit in the head, but could not stand on his own and had to be taken off the field on a stretcher.  From there he was taken to the hospital where doctors examined him and reported no abnormalities in / on Hasegawa's right side of the head.  Hasegawa did not have to be hospitalized and returned to the team hotel after his examination.
