The Japan Women's Baseball League announced changes to their league structure on Thursday. Beginning next season, each team in the league will be aligned with a specific region/location instead of a general direction.
- East Astraia > Saitama Astraia
- West Flora > Kyoto Flora
- South Dione > Hyogo Dione
- North Reia > Tohoku Reia
Tohoku Reia will become a development team for young players.
The season will begin in late-March and will be split into First and Second halves. An All-Star game will be scheduled between the two halves. About sixty games will be played in one year. Updated rosters have been posted at the official league site. [Direct links: Astraia, Flora, Dione, Reia]
