The Yokohama Bay Stars and Nissan announced today that they reached an agreement on a sponsorship deal. As part of the agreement, Nissan’s LEAF (an electric car) will be used as a bullpen car at Yokohama Stadium this season. Nissan billboards will also appear at the stadium for the first time since 1998 (above the big screen in center field and on the lighting bank towers).
The new electric bullpen car, in addition to the billboards, were unveiled at a press conference at the stadium. Alex Ramirez, Yoshitomo Tsutsugo, and Yasuaki Yamasaki took part in the presentation.
