Hiroshima will be spending about 100 million yen to increase the number of group seating sections at Mazda Stadium.  The new sections should be complete by March 5 (exhibition game vs Softank).

Family Terrace Booths
The twelve Family Terrace Booths (for up to eight people) have been popular among fans.  The current twelve booths will be converted to twenty-four booths for up to seven people.  Twenty-five booths for up to eight people will replace the current Balcony Seats section.  (This is not 100% clear in the reports I have read.  I will try to provide better information as it becomes available.)

Bikkuri Terrace (BBQ)
There was only one of these sections on the first base side.  A section in left-center, for up to thirty people, will be added.

Koi Zashiki
The three booths will be increased to nine.

I'll keep this updated throughout the day.

Chunichi Dragons

Chunichi announced today that they'll try to cut back a little more on energy use at Nagoya Dome, beginning on 7/5 (vs Hanshin).  Amongst some of the things they'll be doing: opening up the shutters in the roof during visiting team practices (the Dragons have been doing this for their practices since earlier this month); and attempting to shutout the warm air from the outside by adding cloth screens to four entry gates.

Hiroshima Carp

Beginning on 7/1, the Carp plan on conserving energy by taking on a more flexible approach to their lighting system during night games; using fewer lights during night games; and  adjusting thermostats for air-conditioning units used by various staff and personnel.

Softbank Hawks

The Hawks announced today that they'll try to reduce energy consumption by about 5% during weekday night games at Yahoo Dome between 7/1 and 8/31.  They try to do this by using fewer ceiling lights (from 90 to 54), turning off some of the air conditioning systems (from 14 to 10), and turning off some of the lights in seat areas.  According to an unnamed club source, the team has already tested the configuration during practices at Yahoo Dome on 6/22 and 6/24.

Orix Buffaloes

The Buffaloes announced today that beginning on 7/1, they'll use power generators at Kyocera Dome in order to cut back on energy use by about 10%.  They will also stop lighting Kyocera Dome up (outdoor lights).

Rakuten Eagles

The Eagles announced that they'll be taking the following measures to cut back on energy use at Kleenex Stadium between 7/1 and 9/9:

- Turn off unnecessary lighting (60%)
- Dim the big screen in the outfield to 40% brightness
- Set thermostats to 28 degrees Celsius
- Turn off all air-conditioning systems in the stadium offices between 6pm and 8pm.

Doing all this should allow the Eagles to decrease energy consumption by around 15%.
