Nago tourism board considering shuttle service during spring camp

Nago's tourism board is currently working out details for running a shuttle bus service between some temporary parking lots and the Nago Municipal Baseball Field during the Nippon Ham Fighters upcoming spring camp.

When Tsuyoshi Shinjo joined the team in 2004, 3,500 fans apparently showed up to watch an intra-squad game at the Nago field.  The tourism board set up alternate parking spots away from the field, but cars still showed up near the field, creating major traffic jams in the area.

The Nago tourism board would like to avoid a similar situation this year with Yuki Saito and feels that running a shuttle bus service between the alternate parking spots will keep fans from driving their cars closer to the field.
