The NPB Umpires held a meeting in Tokyo today to discuss the merging of the Central League and Pacific League umpire offices.  They also discussed what needed to be done on the field in order to ensure that the transition goes smoothly (like making sure every one was on the same page with regards to the way umpires conduct themselves on the field).

Chief umpire Osamu Ino also presented the information he learned while participating in this year's MLB umpire meetings.

All 61 members attended the meeting.
