Pro and Amateur to wear Samurai Japan uniforms

by on May.16, 2013 @ 11:26 pm, under Samurai Japan

The NPB and the Baseball Federation of Japan (BFJ) held a press conference in Tokyo today to announce the establishment of the Japan Baseball Marketing Committee (JBMC - Yakyu Nihon Daihyo Marketing Iinkai).

In an effort to strengthen ties between professional and amateur baseball organizations, improve the level of competition, and expand marketing potential, all national baseball teams (including university, Industrial League, and women's baseball) will wear the Samurai Japan uniform.  The JBMC's first job will be to find sponsors for the Japan-USA University Baseball Championship Series that takes place later this year in July.
