I haven't really been able to find any serious updates on this, other than that Higashi-gun beat the Nishi-gun, 4-1.  It also seems as though Kazuhiro Kiyohara was not at the game due to a sudden illness.  The article also does mention that 72-year old pitcher Tomoo Wako hitting 105km/h on the radar gun.

17,921 showed up for the game.

I did manage to find a couple of Japanese blogs with images from the game:

Actually, Doala to Hidenori has two great image of the scoreboard that shows the starting line-ups and the final score.  I'll go and reproduce them here as text:
