[9/7/2015] Tohto University Baseball League, Tokyo Metropolitan Area University Baseball League

by on Sep.08, 2015 @ 9:15 am, under College

The Tohto University Baseball League is thinking about merging the first and second divisions in time for the spring league next year.

Twenty-one universities are currently a part of the league. They are split into four divisions: six in the top three and three in the fourth. The second division used to play a bulk of its games at Jingu 2 Stadium, but they could no longer use the stadium in 2014 because of safety concerns. Some of the universities in the second division do not have adequate facilities for games, or have long distances travel. If the league were to merge the top two divisions, division two teams would be able to play most of their games at Jingu Stadium.

The league will continue deliberations on the merger during its next board of directors meeting on September 10.

[UPDATE 9/15 @ 9:20am]

League officials decided to hold off on combining the first and second divisions during a board of directors meeting on September 10. Officials felt it was too soon to make a decision. Deliberations will continue and other options will be considered.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Area University Baseball League is planning to go with six first division teams instead of eight beginning next spring. The first division expanded from six to eight last spring, but the league decided to go back to the way things were in 2013. The move will be finalized during a steering committee meeting later this month.
