The committee decided to create a new seating section behind home plate for youth teams from the Kinki region that are also members of the Japan Rubber Baseball Association (by invitation, 118 seats, new groups each game). The hope is to give younger players an opportunity to see the tournament first hand from the best seats in the house.
