Sports Hochi is reporting that new turf will be installed at Kyocera Dome. The last time the turf was replaced was in 2011. Construction is scheduled to take place over an a twelve-day period in early March. Mizuno MS Craft Baseball Turf will be used (the same kind at MefLife Dome and Tama Chikugo).
The Orix Buffaloes will make Hotto Motto Kobe their temporary home while the turf is being replaced.
