Below is the breakout of the Japanese League (also known as Pro Yakyu). The Japanese League is called NPB (Nippon Professional Baseball)
(compared to MLB in North America).
I noticed that a few of the stadium names are different than the map I sent in the last email (particularly some in the Pacific League).
I discovered stadium names can change frequently in Japan based on corporate sponsorship. I guess thatís not much different than here.
NPB - Nippon Professional Baseball
Yomiuri Giants - Tokyo Dome
Chunichi Dragons - Nagoya Doma
Yakult Swallows - Meiji-Jingu Stadium
Hanshin Tigers - Koshien Stadium
Yokohama BayStars - Yokohama Stadium
