TOKYO (Reuters) - The U.S. and Japanese baseball champions could meet in a Global World Series, Japanese daily Nikkan Sports reported on Thursday.

Nippon Professional Baseball commissioner Ryozo Kato was quoted as saying his MLB counterpart Bud Selig had agreed the winners of the two countries' professional leagues should play each other.

Kato, a former Japanese ambassador to the U.S., had a meeting with Selig in Milwaukee. Kato told the newspaper Selig had said he wanted to hold such a game before his term is due to end in 2012.
