The media learned on Saturday that a team made up of Hanshin and Yomiuri players is scheduled to play an exhibition game against a team of major leaguers at Koshien Stadium before the start of the Samurai Japan-MLB international series.  November 11 has been mentioned as a possibility.

The last time a Hanshin-Yomiuri team played a game against a team from the United States was in 1981, when the Royals were in Japan.  The last time they played against a team of major leaguers was in 1951 at Koshien Stadium.
