JR Hokkaido withdraws from 2nd round of Hokkaido Regionals

The Hokkaido arm of the Japan Amateur Baseball Association (JABA) announced on Tuesday (6/5) that JR Hokkaido was withdrawing from the 2nd round of Hokkaido Regionals because of recent incidents / accidents on their train lines over the last couple of months (like a big fire on the Sekisho line in May and news that a train driver fell asleep while on the job in June).

This effectively ends JR Hokkaido's bid of making it to the Inter-City Baseball Tournament 7 years in a row.
