Sponichi is reporting that a Tohoku Earthquake Relief benefit game, involving NPB and amateur players, will be played at Koriyama Kaiseizan Baseball Stadium on August 5.
The NPB team will likely be made up of Ni-gun players (two from each team) that have connections to Tohoku (more specifically, Fukishima). Their opponent will be a mixed team of players belonging to Industrial League teams and schools (universities) in Fukushima.
Eastern League managers met today in order to select candidates for the Fresh All-Star Game (July 19). The actual list of candidates will be released, together with the Western League, on April 18.
