81007: Baseball Star Yu Darvish Engaged to Actress

Yu Darvish, who is accustomed to standing in the middle of a baseball diamond as the pitcher for the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters, will soon stand at an altar with Japanese movie actress Saeko, who has consented to be his bride. The couple’s summer romance, which began in May 2007, has brought about the promise of a lifetime of happiness together not only as husband and wife, but also as parents, as the baseball player announced to reporters on August 9, 2007 that Saeko, who has starred in such silver screen successes as “Nana” and “Sugar & Spice,” is expecting a bundle of joy in early 2008. While the prospective groom did not reveal the exact date of their impending wedding, the couple are currently making plans to walk down the aisle when the baseball season draws to a close.
