The Kansai Women's Baseball League (KWBBL) is scheduled for expansion this season, from eight organizations with ten teams to eleven organizations with fifteen teams. They will also be getting support from the Hanshin Tigers, which includes permission to use team mascot Lucky in their new name, the Lucky League.
The KWBBL is hoping to increase visibility with the support they receive from the Tigers. Future tie-ups could include a championship series against the Venus League (Kanto region women's baseball league with backing from the Yomiuri Giants), games at Naruohama Stadium, and a Hanshin awards ceremony.
