Friends and Family -

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.
