The Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters announced Monday a basic design for their new ballpark to be completed in the spring of 2023 as Japan’s second with a retractable roof.

The 35,000-seat facility will have a high peaked roof reminiscent of traditional old-style Hokkaido homes, and a massive transparent “glass wall” on the outfield side of the park. This will allow the park to be fully enclosed during Hokkaido’s frigid snowy winters and still support natural grass.
