Tokyo Big 6 announces time changes for Waseda – Keio games on 29th, 30th

Tags: , ,

The Tokyo Big 6 announced today that the Waseda - Keio games scheduled on the 29th and 30th will start at noon, instead of the originally planned 13:00.  The change in time was made after the Yakult Swallows secured 2nd place in the Central League (they require the use of Jingu Stadium for the First Stage of the Climax Series).

The Swallows also made adjustments to their schedule by starting games 30 minutes later than normal (18:30 instead of 18:00).

Waseda – Keio games could be played on same days Swallows play Climax Series

If the Yakult Swallows end up finishing the year in 2nd place, they First Stage of the Climax Series will take place between 10/29 and 10/31 at Jingu Stadium.  Waseda and Keio are also set to play games at Jingu Stadium on both the 29th and 30th.  If the Swallows do indeed finish in second place it'll be the first time (over a 109-year history) the Waseda - Keio games are played on days the Swallows also require use of the stadiums

On Friday, the Tokyo Big 6 Federation's Masayuki Naito (head of the secretariat) told reporters that the league currently had no plans to make any changes to the schedule, but also hinted that they were willing to cooperate if necessary.

As it stands now, the Waseda - Keio games are set to begin at 13:00 with the Swallows' Climax Series games set to begin at 18:30.  On Friday (10/14), the Tokyo Big 6 ran a simulation at Jingu Stadium to see if it was possible to maintain the current schedule.
