The MLB umpire's meetings taking place in Scottsdale, Arizona ended on the 19th.  NPB Chief Umpire, Osamu Ino, is scheduled to present a report on the information he learned during an upcoming meeting scheduled for the 23rd.

Ino told reporters that he had a chance to discuss issues relating to the merger of the AL and PL umpiring staff in 2000 (something that will be finalized in the NPB this year) and also had a chance to watch how MLB umps discussed problematic calls from the past season by reviewing actual footage.
