Report: Dodgers Backing Out of Japan Game in 2025

The Los Angeles Dodgers are apparently revoking a proposed routine season opener next season in Japan.

The Japanese news outlet Sanspo was very first to report the news. Steven Negishi equated the report from Japanese to English.

The Dodgers opened their 2023 routine season in Seoul, South Korea with 2 video games versus the San Diego Padres. Faced with the proposal of doing so once again, the group may not wish to start another season midway throughout the world.

The factors make good sense: the long, substantial travel the gamers would when again withstand might produce another long year. The Dodgers, who lead Major League Baseball in home presence, likewise would not wish to quit another home video game due to being No. 1 in presence over the previous handful of seasons. The Dodgers’ choice brings substantial weight. 

Reports emerged back in March that the Dodgers would likely open their 2025 season in Japan versus the Chicago Cubs. The possibility of that taking place now appears lower — to the advantage of the Dodgers, and to the hinderance of Japanese fans who would have seen 2 of their native kids (Dodger stars Shohei Ohtani and Yoshinobu Yamamoto) on baseball’s most significant phase. Neither MLB nor the Dodgers have actually verified the presence of the Japan journey, not to mention any taking part groups. 

If the Dodgers choose to take part in a 2025 Japan Series, they would end up being the very first MLB group to open back-to-back routine seasons overseas. The Dodgers left their Korea journey 1-1 versus the Padres, winning the very first of 2 and losing in a back-and-forth offending fight in the 2nd video game after Yamamoto’s headache start in his big league launching.
