Pro and amateur organizations met today in order to continue discussions on what kind of training courses former professional players will need to take in order to earn licenses to coach amateur baseball. Both sides have moved closer to a final agreement but still need to work out a number of minor issues, like how many applicants will be allowed to take the training courses during the first year. The two sides will meet again on June 11. If discussions continue to move along smoothly, decisions could be finalized during meetings on June 14 (Japan High School Baseball Federation board of directors and trustees meeting) and June 18 (Japan Student Baseball Association board of directors meeting).
