The Eastern League Giants-Lotte game on June 20 was the first night game at Giants Stadium.
The game starts at 6:00 pm. Fans on their way home from work or school also stood out in the stands. 913 people came to support on a weekday Tuesday. 295 spectators for the Seibu match on June 21 last year, which was a twilight night game that started at 4:00 pm on the same third Tuesday. The start of the game was delayed by two hours, and more than three times as many fans gathered. Hirokazu Kikuta (21), an infielder, said, “It was fun with a good atmosphere.” On the 21st, the match against Lotte, which also started at 6:00 pm, had 1,210 people, and the stands were filled with even more people.
Behind the new attempt, there is a desire for the new Giants stadium scheduled to open in 2025.
Giants Jun Fujimon Home Town Promotion Manager said, “Even if it’s a farm, I want many customers to come to the new stadium. I thought it would be better to start at 6:00 pm.I had never done that before.The opening of the new stadium is approaching, so I will accumulate knowledge from this season and use it for the opening of the new stadium. I want to,” he explains. A new stadium with artificial turf covering 122 meters in the center field and 100 meters in both wings. With a capacity of 2,700 people, it will also be Japan’s first stadium with an integrated aquarium. We aim to make watching baseball games on the farm take root in the region and become more familiar.[Yuta Ueda in charge of giants]
