The NPB officially announced the following changes to the All-Star Series schedule today:

Game 1 - 7/22 (Fri) - Nagoya Dome
Game 2 - 7/23 (Sat) - QVC Marine Field
Game 3 - 7/24 (Sun) - Kleenex Stadium

Start times and other detailed information will be posted on 6/7.  Games canceled by rain will not be made up.

The All-Star Series was originally set to take place at Nagoya Dome, Tokyo Dome, and QVC Marine Field (in that order).  After the earthquake and tsunami hit northern Japan, there was a move to play one of the three games at Kleenex Stadium as a way to help revitalize the region.
