The NPB executive committee met for a meeting earlier today and discussed the following issues:

They agreed that the Eastern League season will begin on 3/19 and the Western League season on 3/15.  They also decided that the 2011 Farm Championships will take place on 10/1 in Miyazaki.

They brainstormed ideas for ensuring that every game of the Nippon Series gets shown on TV next year.

Practice games between NPB teams and KBO teams during spring camp will be given a "league name" to help provide more exposure to the games.  There will be no standings or championship games though.

The Japan - Korea Championships ended in 15M yen in the black.
