The Nisitetsu Lions called Heiwadei Stadium home for their entire existence. They were one of a dominant team in the Pacific League during the 1950s, winning four pennants, including three straight Japan Series.
The team struggled through the following decade and did not witness much success on the field. After a third straight last-place finish, in November 1972 the franchise was sold to the Fukuoka Baseball Corporation, and the team was renamed the Taiheiyo Club Lions.
The Nisitetsu Lions Coach Jacket is inspired by one of Japan's now defunct baseball teams. It's made in a Japanese Nylon. It comes with brass YKK Zips, with felt embroidery.
