The Japan Amateur Baseball Association (JABA) announced on Friday that the 2012 Inter-City Baseball Tournament will take place over 12 days in July and return to Tokyo Dome.

The tournament was moved to Kyocera Dome this year and delayed to October due to scheduling and energy conservation issues brought on by the March 11 earthquake / tsunami.

The JABA also decided to reduce the Kinki block from 6 teams to 5 teams and increase the Kyushu block from 2 teams to 3 teams for the Inter-City Baseball Tournament next year.
