[6/29/2016] Logan Ondrusek to resume practices on June 30

Logan Ondrusek met with Yakult Swallows’ officials, including Senior Director Junji Ogawa, earlier today and apologized for his actions. The Swallows in turn lifted their suspension. He will be able to resume practices at the Ni-gun facilities on June 30.

Ondrusek was taken off the active roster on June 27 and suspended because he had an outburst in the dugout after an outing against Chunichi on June 26.

Ondrusek still needs to meet with the Ichi-gun manager and coaches. He is not expected to travel out to them during the team’s current road trip and will most likely wait for their return. He participated in Ni-gun practices at the Toda facilities in Saitama today. He told reporters he was sorry for his actions and wanted to regain everyone’s trust by practicing hard.
