Former Yomiuri Giants manager and Japanese baseball icon Shigeo Nagashima has indicated that he will soon make his first public appearance since suffering a stroke in March last year.

Nagashima, 69, said in a message posted Monday on the Giants’ official Web site that his rehabilitation “has been progressing smoothly” and that he thinks he can meet baseball fans “shortly at a stadium.”
