The Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks scripted a masterpiece in the final stage of the Pacific League Climax Series.

The Seibu Lions entered the series having dethroned the Hawks as Pacific League champions and with an offense that had run roughshod to the tune 792 runs during the season. They had a bye through the first stage and had earned the right to host every game of the final stage. The Pa. League even put a cherry on top with the automatic one-game advantage for the pennant winner.
