Hisashi Iwakuma throws live BP and draws a crowd

One of the more anticipated mound appearances of the early spring came and went not too long ago when Hisashi Iwakuma threw a live bullpen session with hitters standing in and tracking the ball.
Iwakuma will throw again in two days and by then, the hitters should be swinging.

Now, as we’ve seen already the first 10 days or so of camp, any time Iwakuma so much as sneezes, he draws a crowd. It was no different this time around. Not much to judge out there quality-wise. It was his first time throwing with actual hitters standing in the batter’s box.
But this stuff passes for exciting until the intra-squad games start later this week.

Adam Moore was the guy catching Iwakuma today. They warmed up together in the bullpen (photo above) and then walked out to the mound.
