Visit Yokohama-shi - Best of Yokohama-shi

Yokohama Stadium (横浜スタジアム Yokohama Sutajiamu) is a stadium in Naka Ward, Yokohama, Japan. It opened in 1978 and holds 30,000 people. It is primarily used for baseball and is the home field of the Yokohama DeNA BayStars. The stadium is unique, because it features dirt around the bases and pitcher's mound, but with dirt colored turf infield and base paths. The entire green portion of the field is now turf. The stadium is one of only three venues in Japan, with an American look (an all-grass outfield and infield, with dirt base paths), the others are Kobe Sports Park Baseball Stadium in Kobe and Mazda Stadium in Hiroshima. It hosted an Australian Rules Football match and drew the second largest crowd, for such an event, outside of Australia.
