I'll keep this updated throughout the day.

Chiba Lotte Marines

The Marines, in cooperation with Funabashi Keiba (horse-racing), invited 110 earthquake and tsunami victims to their game against the Orix Buffaloes (QVC Marine) today.  And outside of the stadium, merchants sold products from Fukushima and Iwate regions.

Rakuten Eagles

The Eagles are planning on using 10% less energy during day games (average use is usually around 1,271 kW) and 15% less energy during night games (average use is about 1,583 kW) this year.  They'll do this by turning off some of the lights in the concourse areas, turning down the brightness on the big screen beyond the OF seats, and turning the lights out at the stadium 15 minutes after the game (instead of 30 minutes).
