(February 28th)

Last night’s dinner was with a group of men that we call the auxiliary staff. They are the guys who make things happen for our team.

They are the “behind the scenes” people who move the equipment, set up the field, video the games, score the games, prepare the players by throwing and catching batting practice, prepare charts, information, and statistics, and all of things that go into pre-game. They also handle all of our travel, our necessary flight schedules, and hotel room bookings. The gentlemen that I had the pleasure of being with last night also handle our public relations and our contact with the media. So the media people of Kajiwara-san and Enoki-san were there, and Sano-san, our head manager, who takes care all of our travel, and his assistant Takahashi-san, and Sogabe-san and Nagasaki-san, who do our equipment, as I’ve mentioned before, and do such a fabulous job of getting everything ready. Sakamaki-san does a lot of the evaluation process. Ishida-san is in the back row with his hands up. He’s really in charge of scheduling the batting practice, pitchers, the video, man the catching (the guys who catch our bullpens and our batting practice) and doing all of the real laborious work, as well as all the mental figuring (that is compiling of statistics). There’s also Paul Pupo, of course who didn’t make it to this dinner.

So, thanks to all of them, I think I’m going to have very successful season. They’re a very good group – hardworking. Most of them have been with me for all the years that I’ve been here. I’m proud to say that they are the men behind the team.
