The Orix Buffaloes (オリックス・バファローズ) is a baseball team in Ōsaka and Kōbe, Japan, that plays in the Pacific League of Nippon Professional Baseball. The team is owned by the Orix Group , a leading diversified financial services company based in Tokyo.
The team was formed after the 2004 NPB season by the merger of the Orix BlueWave and the Ōsaka Kintetsu Buffaloes. The merged team is slated to begin play in the 2005 NPB season, splitting its home games between the Skymark Stadium in Kōbe (the former home of the BlueWave) and the Ōsaka Dome in Ōsaka (the former home of the Kintetsu Buffaloes).
