[12/17/2017] Yakult Swallows to try sending a few players to Arizona for off-season training

The Yakult Swallows are planning to send a trainer to Arizona for about about two weeks in January to study up on the latest training techniques. The Swallows are also planning to have Naruki Terashima and Yugo Umeno (and possibly Keiji Takahashi, depending on the condition of his left shoulder and lower back) tag along with hopes that they will learn something new while in the States. If things go well, the Swallows could send a few of their younger players to the States every year.
