NPB vs University games to become a possibility

The Japan Student Baseball Association (JSBA) held a board of directors meeting on Monday to discuss changes to the charter that will relax current rules that keep amateur players (high school and college) away from pro players.  The group also confirmed their stance to try and implement the changes by 3/1/2011.

The changes to the charter will also allow NPB teams to set up exhibition games against University teams next year.  Exhibition games between University and NPB teams will likely be finalized during the JSBA's trustee's meeting on 2/16, and for the time being, will likely be scheduled during Spring and Summer breaks.
