The Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs are likely to participate in the Japan Opening Series, which will be held on March 19-20 next year.

The Dodgers include superstar Shohei Ohtani and the most expensive right-handed pitcher, Yoshinobu Yamamoto.

The Cubs have outfielder Seiya Suzuki and left-handed pitcher Shota Imanaga.

Commissioner Sakakibara said, “It would be great if two teams participate, but nothing has been decided yet.

However, I heard that a team with high level performance will come.”

The stadium where the 2025 MLB Japan Opening Series will be held will be decided at a later date.

MLB is holding opening games around the world to promote the league.

This year, the Dodgers and San Diego Padres played the opening two-game series at Gocheok Dome in Seoul last month.

This year’s opening series attracted a lot of attention as it was the first regular league game after Ohtani’s transfer, and many Japanese reporters flocked to it.

In addition to Ohtani, several other Japanese star players participated in the Seoul Series, including Yamamoto and San Diego’s Yu Darubishu and Yuki Matsui.

Japan has hosted the MLB Opening Game a total of five times, starting in 2000, in 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2019.

All five games were held at Tokyo Dome.
