Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks Tickets
Enjoy the best of Japanese baseball: Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks
Baseball is one of the most popular pastimes in Japan, so much so that you’d perhaps think you were in the United States watching a Major League Baseball game! In fact, both the MLB and the Nippon Professional Baseball Organization - the top pro league in the country – have strong ties to each other, to many Japanese players going on to play in the US. Fukuoka Softbank Hawks is an important team based in Fukuoka. They were established in 1938 and have played in the Nippon Professional Baseball Pacific league since 1950. Like many teams with such a long history, Fukuoka Softbank Hawks have had their ups and downs, though they remain one of the most effective and traditional teams in the country.
