Shun Yamaguchi recently got a buzz cut.
The Bay Stars received approval from the league during an executive committee meeting on Thursday for their plans to add an LED board across the top of the outfield fence at Yokohama Stadium. The board will not display moving images when batters are hitting since it will be viewable from the batter's box. Construction is set to begin within the next few days.
