The Yafuoku Dome is the home of the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks. It currently holds up to 48,000 and has an retractable roof. The dimensions from left-center-right are 328, 400, 328. It was known as the Fukuoka Dome from 1993 to 2004 before the stadium naming rights were bought by Softbank, who holds the most shares of Yahoo! Japan, thus the stadium name of Fukuoka Yahoo! Japan Dome; the name was changed to the Japanese of Fukuoka Yafuoku Dome in 2013.
The ballpark will be the site of Pool A games in the 2013 World Baseball Classic
