  • What is the point of the silver roof portion behind the 3rd-base side stands?
    At first I thought it might be a retractable roof, but then thought maybe not.
    The should consider a retractable roof there, it’s been great here in Seattle, and I believe the climate in Hokkaido is similar.
    I know it’s expensive, but if they want to be Asia’s number one ballpark, it would make a much better experience for early and late-season games.

      I don’t think it was mentioned in their post, but there are media articles that indicate the Fighters want natural grass and a retractable roof.
