Dome's diary - July 6th

Dome keeps his diary posted on his website once or twice a month, and here's quick summery of what he wrote on July  6th.

-----------------------------

- The weather in Chicago is pretty cool. Is it really July? It should be very hot and humid back in Nagoya in the middle of rainy season.

- We won the 4-game series agains 1st place Milwaukee, and came back to .500. It's pretty hard to go high above .500 as of now but we definitely want to ride on upward wave in this 10-game home games at Wrigley.

The homer was my first one in a while - I thought I never be able to hit another one :-)  It's been too long and I almost forget my feelings when I hit homer. It jammed a little bit but went yard well.

- My average goes down a bit recently and I don't mind it yet... well, I'd be lying if I said so, but it is actually too early to mind. There is much more outs than last year that satisfied myself as I felt I did pretty good hitting, so I don't mind.

- After All Star Game, Sasaki-san (Dome's hitting coach Kyosuke Sasaki) will come to Chicago again and check my hitting, so I will be having some refreshing time with my family during ASG break.

- So overall in 1st half of this season, I feel way better than last year so I hope my numbers go up again and resulted well. The team was likely to get off the track a little bit until now, but we definitely want to create margin above .500 as many as we can before ASG. I owe you fans' support a lot and you should be careful for suffering summer heat.

- BTW, Tora (nickname of his best friend Masahiro Araki, Dragons' 2nd baseman) recently made his 250th career stolen base. This should be just another pass point for him, but congrats anyway!
