The Japan High School Baseball Federation and the NPB announced on Saturday that the "Yume-no Muko" symposium will take place on the baseball field next year as part of a test run to allow professional athletes a chance to coach amateur (high school) players.

The first on-field symposium for about 1,000 high school players will take place next year on 1/21 at Miyazaki Prefecture Sports Park.  Eight professional players will attend as panelists/coaches.
