In a recent meeting with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred in South Korea, Japanese baseball commissioner Sadayuki Sakakibara announced that the upcoming US Major League Baseball season will kick off in Japan on March 19 and 20. Although the specific location and teams participating in these opening games have not been decided yet, sources suggest that the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs could be the teams playing in the series.

According to Sakakibara, Manfred expressed interest in having teams that would deliver high-quality baseball for these opening games. The commissioner of Nippon Professional Baseball is excited about the potential matchup between these two popular teams, but emphasized that nothing has been finalized at this moment.

Shohei Ohtani, a Japanese superstar who currently plays for the Los Angeles Dodgers alongside pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto, is one of the main draws for these upcoming games. Ohtani’s popularity in Japan has contributed to the high level of interest in these events.

The series is expected to be a landmark event for baseball fans in Japan and around the world, as it marks a new chapter in the relationship between Major League Baseball and Japanese professional baseball. With no official announcement yet from officials at Nippon Professional Baseball, fans will have to wait until closer to March 19th to find out which teams will be taking part in this highly anticipated event.
