Commissioner Ryozo Kato told reporters yesterday that he hoped the new Mizuno baseball the NPB will be using next season, will ultimately be approved by the IBAF and used in international competitions like the WBC.

Mizuno already has a baseball that has been approved by the IBAF (the Mizuno 150) and is currently in talks to replace that ball with the new NPB baseball.
