The Curacao government is thinking about giving Wladimir Balentien an award for breaking the NPB's single season home run record. A parade could also be in the works.
Yakult Europe is located in Almere, The Netherlands. Some sort of joint celebration to commemorate the new record could be scheduled.

The Swallows are thinking about designating areas in the outfield where home runs fifty-five through fifty-seven landed as Balentien or Coco Seats. Plaques are also a possibility if the team determines the landing location to be in the aisles. The Coco Meter was also recently updated to count up to sixty-five.
Balentien's mother is planning to attend games at Yokohama Stadium. It seems she has been a hit with Yakult fans asking to take their pictures with her.
