Central and Pacific League delegates met in Tokyo on Monday.  They discussed the Central League's proposal to cut back the number of Inter-league games from twenty-four to twelve, but could not reach a consensus.  The discussions will resume during another meeting in July.  If changes are going to be made, they will have to be in place by September to make it into next season's schedule.

The Central League is suggested a decrease from twenty-four to either eighteen or twelve.  The Pacific League wants to keep the current schedule, but an increase to thirty-six was also reportedly suggested.
