[3/17/2017] Fukushima to host baseball and softball games during 2020 Olympics

The International Olympic Committee has agreed to add Azuma Baseball Stadium in Fukushima Prefecture as a venue for at least one baseball and softball game during the 2020 Olympics. The 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami hit the prefecture hard and caused a nuclear incident. The region is recovering, but playing host during the Olympics should provide an economic boost.
