[8/16/2016] An ocean view at QVC Marine Field

Chiba Lotte Marines President Shinya Yamamuro told reporters on August 15 about a plan to improve QVC Marine Field by taking down a portion of the walls (most likely beyond the right field bleachers) to give the stadium a view of the ocean. Yamamuro visited AT&T Park in San Francisco in June and was impressed with the layout of the stadium.

The Marines do not hold rights to renovate the stadium. They would have to get permission from Chiba City. Yamamuro believes the organization could make a good case if they can draw close to their 2008 record of 1,601,632. As of August 15, they are at 1,178,917 in fifty-four games with eighteen left to play.
