The Island League (IL) held a board of directors meeting on Wednesday and officially decided that the Nagasaki Saints would be dissolved after the current season. Players on the Saints will be pooled into a draft that will take place on 10/13.
The Nagasaki Saints were the only team from Kyushu in the league. Now that they're gone, the league is not quite sure what to do about the full league name: the Shikoku Kyushu Island League.
The Mie Three Arrows also had an opportunity to talk about their application to the league at the meeting. The IL will hold another board of directors meeting on 10/13 to deliberate whether or not Mie should be allowed to join the league.
