[3/16/2018] Hitoki Iwase, Masahiro Araki lose coaching titles

The Chunichi Dragons announced on March 16 that pitcher/pitching coach Hitoki Iwase and infielder/infield coach Masahiro Araki will no longer be coaches. The team made the decision because the Central League agreement only allows up to eight coaches in the dugout. Iwase and Araki will maintain their duties as coaches.
