The media learned on December 15 that the indoor practice facilities at Kochi Haruno General Sports Park will be redone with artificial turf. The practice facilities are currently dirt. People close to the situation have told reporters that the Seibu Lions asked for the change to artificial turf and that the facilities will be ready for spring camp.
The new turf at the facilities will be made by Sekisui Jushi and will be similar to what is used at Nagoya Dome and Sapporo Dome. The total cost is expected to be about 140 million yen.
