The Suntory The Premium Malts Dream Match 2010 took place today at Tokyo Dome.  45,200 fans apparently were in attendance.

From the very little I was able to gather so far:

Yuriko Yoshitaka (actress) threw out the ceremonial first pitch and actually had two chances to throw the ball.

Starting line-ups:

Japan Heroes
Yutaka Fukumoto, Tadashi Matsumoto, Hiromichi Ishige, Norihiro Komada, Kazunori Yamamoto, Yoshiaki Kanemura, Yonetoshi Kawamata, Akihiko Oya, Kenji Tomashino
SP: Masumi Kuwata

The Premium Malts
Yasushi Tao, Yutaka Takagi, Takehiko Kobayakawa, Randy Bass, Katsumi Hirosawa, Takahiro Ikeyama, Daisuke Motoki, Mitsuo Tatsukawa, Kaname Yashiki
SP: Kazutomo Miyamoto

Highlight shows on TV mentioned that Choji Murata hit 129km/h on the radar gun.

Randy Bass had three hits and two RBI, including an RBI double off Masumi Kuwata in the first and an RBI single off Akio Saito in the 8th.  Bass also ended up winning the MVP award for the game for the second time in as many years.

Masumi Kuwata gave up 2 runs in the first inning and then played some short and second beginning in the third inning and also hit a RBI single to left in the 5th inning.

The Mainichi site has a few images from the game.  A blog called Club Duke also has some nice shots from the game.

You can find a list of players that participated at the official site.

I'm sure I'll be able to track down some more info tomorrow.
