Masanao Yoshida of the Major League Baseball Red Sox is entering his second training camp in Florida. He is expected to play primarily as a designated hitter for the new season.

Yoshida, who is in his second year with the Red Sox, had his first day of general practice on the 19th at a camp site in Fort Myers, Florida. "It should be more than last year," he says, and has high expectations for his batting, which has a batting average of.289, which ranks fifth in the league.
