The Metropolitan Police Department Baseball Team?

According to Sponichi, the Metropolitan Police Department (Riot Division) is currently thinking about starting up a team of it's own.

They are hoping to flag down players from Industrial League teams that are being phased out due to the current economic downturn and will also turn to high school and college graduates that want to continue playing, but have no place to play.

The MPD Riot Division has teams in other sports and have even seen a number of their wrestlers and fencers make it to the Olympics.

The baseball team will be based out of Tachikawa City in Tokyo, home of the 4th Riot Division.  A former Third High School of Nihon University and current assistant police inspector will likely become the manager of the newly formed team. For the time being, the team will be formed by rounding up Riot Division members with baseball experience with the goal of qualifying for the Intercity Championships.

If everything goes according to plans, the 4th Riot Division may also start accepting employees looking to make the team in 2010.
