The NPB decided today, during an executive committee meeting, and with the push of the Central League, that they will begin cracking down on players that hold friendly chat sessions with opposing players before, during, and after games (as noted under Rule 3.09, Section 1).  It seems the CL is doesn't want to allow anyone the opportunity to misinterpret the chat sessions.

The Central League held a board of directors meeting today and decided to reconsider the qualifications for the Rookie of the Year Award.  The league is apparently thinking about the possibility of opening up the award to foreign players due to the growing number of foreign players without MLB experience.
