According to team owner Kiyoshi Wakabayashi, TBS Holdings may be close to an agreement with JS Group Corporation. Said Wakabayashi,"I think they're close. ... There are any specific developments. ... I don't think it'll take much longer." With regards to keeping the Bay Stars in Yokohama, Wakayabashi told reporters that he felt JS Group Corporation understood the situation and will keep the team where it is.
Yokohama mayor Fumiko Hayashi held a press conference on Monday and said that the city needed to make sure that they provided whatever support they could in order to help create a more stable environment for the team -- like helping the team bring in more fans or re-working the cost of using the stadium (the city holds stock in the company that owns the stadium).
