Japanese baseball officials said Tuesday that this year’s exhibition series between the Japanese All-Stars and major leaguers will be held as scheduled in November.

Following an averted strike in the major leagues, the Japan Baseball Organization (NPB) confirmed that the seven-game series will be played between Nov. 10 and 17 in four cities.

The major league squad will also meet the Yomiuri Giants at the Tokyo Dome on Nov. 9 prior to the series featuring four games at the Tokyo Dome (Nov. 10, 15-17), and one game each at the Fukuoka Dome (Nov. 11), Osaka Dome (Nov. 12) and Sapporo Dome (Nov. 14).
