Chunichi Dragons: Nagoya Dome ceiling panel damaged

One of the ceiling panels at Nagoya Dome was found damaged before Tuesday's game between the Hanshin Tigers and Chunichi Dragons.  Stadium officials checked on the panel to see if there was a possibility it might fall (the panel is located about the infield area) and deemed it secure enough for a game.

A special rule was also added before the start of the game: any baseballs that got stuck on or around the panel would be considered a double.

The Dragons expect the panel to be fixed in time for tomorrow's game.
