(February 2nd) We just completed our first day of 2008 spring training. I’d like to tell you that it was a fabulous day!

We thought that we were going to have rain today but instead, it cleared up! We had all the facilities to use and players had a terrific day to work in.

I was very impressed with the condition of some of the existing players, including Imae who will be challenged by Hosoya this entire season. Also Hayasaka looks to be in the good condition for being a young position player.

The pitchers will be throwing today except Naruse who wanted to take one more day off as he is trying to rest up his arm from the exhausted amount of throwing he’s had to do over the last 12 months. Everybody else threw and looked extremely good, including our No.1 draft, Hattori-toushu – he looked very good throwing a ball in the bullpen on the first day.

New gaikokujin (foreign) players, Winston Abreu, along with a veteran Brian Sikorski also looked very good. Julio Zuleta looks healthy and was swinging the bat well.

Looking forward to another practice day tomorrow! I hope everyone will stay with us.

Again, I want to tell you that the facility really looks great! I’ll be sending some pictures for you all very soon.

    Hello Mr. Valentine,
    It has been a long time since I last wrote comments here. I am sorry to hear that your father passed away and I happy to hear tha you are fine now. I have just renew my membership today at the Marine stadium today and I am so anxious looking forward for the season to start. Please show us more pictures of Ishigaki Island. Omine senshu must be very happy to be back. It seems that each players enjoy the camp there. But too bad, it rains almost everyday. Bye Bye…

    It’s been a long time.
    I’m very happy because you also come to Japan this year.

    I saw the state of the Ishigakijima camp by a television.
    Maybe the weather is bad, but I’m very happy because I see a lot of Marines fans in Ishigakijima supporting.

    I’m wating in Chiba ! :P

    P.S. 2 weeks ago, I met in DEEN by an event. ;)
