The Asia Series Steering Committee held a meeting in Tokyo today and confirmed plans to hold the Asia Series later this year in the fall.  Location and times have not yet been decided.

Officials from the NPB, KBO, CPBL, and the ABL attended the meeting.  Schedules for each of leagues were reviewed.  IBAF President Riccardo Fraccari was also in attendance and told committee members that the inclusion of the European Cup winner last year helped give the Series a presence in Europe.  As such, there is a chance the European Cup winner will be invited back this year.
