The Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks clinched their 21st league championship in franchise history on Tuesday and their sixth since being taken over by SoftBank in 2005.

The pennant is the Hawks’ first since 2017. Their next step will be to host the Pacific League Climax Series playoffs, abbreviated this year due to the novel coronavirus pandemic to a single two-team, four-game competition between the champs and runners-up starting Nov. 14.
