The Hanshin Tigers’ Naruohama facilities could be used as a practice field for the World Baseball Classic next year. Officials from the WBC visited the facilities on September 27.

Practice games for the First Round will take place at Kyocera Dome between March 3 and 6. Tournament organizers are looking for a field close to the dome that teams can use for practice. The Naruohama facilities are a top candidate.
