At a news conference held earlier today, there was a frenzy of interest as media outlets in Alaska vied to catch a glimpse of the 6-foot, 200-lb 27-year-old with a 98 mph cut fastball.

Saito will wear #9 for Anchorage, and may be ready to pitch as early as Nov. 30th for the highly anticipated St. Andrew’s Day Series game against the Arizona Cowboys.
