Interesting scene in the clubhouse this morning. Kei Igawa was playing a game of shogi with one of the Japanese reporters.

Shogi is a variation of chess and Igawa is said to be a very good player. He hopes to get other Yankees interested in playing. Mike Myers was watching and could be the first to learn.

Igawa is an interesting dude. He likes playing video games and has a fleet of radio-controlled model cars that he races. He also just got married.

We haven’t had too much of a chance to get to talk to him yet but I’m looking forward to it. His dinner is Saturday night.
