It’s now time to decide who will move on to the 2011 Japan Series. The schedule for the final stage of the Climax Series is set to go a little something like this (scroll down for the Pacific League schedule):
2nd place Tokyo Yakult Swallows vs 1st place Chunichi Dragons
|1||Nov. 2nd, 2011||Wednesday||6 PM|
|2||Nov. 3rd 2011||Thursday||6 PM|
|3||Nov. 4th 2011||Friday||6 PM|
|4||Nov. 5th 2011||Saturday||6 PM|
|5||Nov. 6th 2011||Sunday||6 PM|
|6||Nov. 7th 2011||Monday||6 PM|
All games will be played at Nagoya Dome, home of the Chunichi Dragons.
*As 2011 Central League champions, Chunichi enters the best of seven series with a one game advantage. In other words, just pretend that the Dragons and Swallows already played the first game and that the Dragons won. Yes, we agree that it’s stupid.
3rd place Saitama Seibu Lions vs 1st place Fukuoka Softbank Hawks
|1||Nov. 3rd 2011||Thursday||6 PM|
|2||Nov. 4th 2011||Friday||6 PM|
|3||Nov. 5th 2011||Saturday||1 PM|
|4||Nov. 6th 2011||Sunday||1 PM|
|5||Nov. 7th 2011||Monday||6 PM|
|6||Nov. 8th 2011||Tuesday||6 PM|
All games will be played at Yahoo Dome, home of the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks.
*As 2011 Pacific League champions, Fukuoka enters this best of seven series with a one game advantage. In other words, just pretend that the Hawks and Lions already played the first game and that the Hawks won. Therefore, they already lead the series 1-0.
