Nishi Nippon Pirates

The Nishi-Nippon Pirates (西日本パイレーツ Nishi-Nippon Pairētsu) were a Japanese baseball team and a founding member of the Central League in 1950. The team was owned by the Nishi-Nippon Shimbun and played their home games in Heiwadai Stadium in Fukuoka. The team existed for one season — they placed sixth in 1950, and the following season merged with the also Fukuoka-based Nishitetsu Clippers to form the Nishitetsu Lions.

Heiwadai Stadium

Heiwadai Stadium (平和台野球場 Heiwadai Yakyūjō) was a stadium in Fukuoka, Fukuoka, Japan. It was primarily used for baseball and was home of the Nishitetsu Lions until they moved to Tokorozawa and the Seibu Dome in 1979. The stadium was opened in 1949 and had a capacity of 32,000 people. It was also home to the Fukuoka Daiei Hawks from 1988 when they moved from Osaka until 1993 when the new Fukuoka Dome was built. The stadium was demolished in 1997.
