Baseball commissioner announces Japan will host MLB season-opener next year

The upcoming US Major League Baseball season is set to begin in Japan on March 19 and 20, according to the Japanese baseball commissioner. While the specific location and teams participating in these opening games are yet to be decided, reports suggest that the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs could be playing in the series.

Japanese media outlets have been closely following Japanese superstar Shohei Ohtani, who currently plays for the Los Angeles Dodgers alongside pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto. Ohtani’s popularity in Japan has contributed significantly to the high level of interest in these upcoming games.

Sakakibara recently met with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred in South Korea to discuss the plans for these games. Manfred expressed interest in having teams that would deliver high-quality baseball for these opening games, while Nippon Professional Baseball commissioner Sakakibara emphasized that nothing has been finalized at this moment.

The series is expected to be a landmark event for baseball fans in Japan and around the world. Despite no official announcement from officials at Nippon Professional Baseball, reports indicate that this could be a significant boost to the sport’s popularity both domestically and internationally.
