The Kansai 6 University Baseball League plans to adopt tie-break rules for league games beginning this spring in order to do away with suspended games.  Under the new rule, if a game is still tied after three hours of play, teams will begin the next inning with the bases loaded and one out.

The Kansai 6 University Baseball League is the first university league in Kansai to adopt tie-break rules.

===

The Baseball Federation of Japan held a meeting in Tokyo today and decided that the national team competing at the Asian Baseball Championships in Taiwan in November will be made up of University and Industrial League players.  The NPB will be notified of the decision during another meeting in March.

An Industrial League team manager will be selected to manage the national team.  An official announcement on the selection will be made in April.

Around fifty players will be selected for the preliminary roster.  Fourth year university students will be left out due to the timing of the event.
