Japan's first multipurpose stadium

In front of the infield standPitchers moundWas the first in Japan to adopt the movable type. The shape of the ground when baseball is held (normal time)Fan shapeAlthough,American FootballWhen holding games such as, it was possible to move the movable stand on the first base side and the third base side to change the ground shape to a rectangle.[8].. The mound is an elevating type, and when holding an event other than baseball, you can lower the mound, frame it, and lay an artificial turf mat to level the entire ground.

Both the movable stand and the lifting mound are set up for use in performances other than professional baseball, and Yokohama Stadium can be said to be the first building in Japan to be a multi-purpose stadium from the design stage. You can see the influence of the American football stadium that was popular in the United States from the 1960s to the 1970s, such as a field made in a perfect circle centering on the back of the second base. This design conceptDome StadiumEtc. It is also the first Japanese professional baseball stadium to have a full-scale artificial turf ground, an electric bulletin board type scoreboard, and a video display device from the time of construction.

The movable stand was half-moon shaped on both the first and third bases, and was on two rails with a total length of 36 m, and was able to move at a speed of 2 m per minute.But,2001/May 11With Yokohama Bay Stars held inYokohama F. MarinosThe move is postponed at the end of the joint fan appreciation event with.2003/This is due to prioritizing the maintenance of the "field turf" laid from the season.Field sheetAfter the foundation work of (excitement sheet installed in the foul zone from 2013), the movable stand is virtually fixed to the 2st and XNUMXrd base side while riding on the two rails.[9].

In addition, from the design stage, it is planned to set up two locker rooms on the first and third base sides.On the first base side, there were also two supervision rooms and two coach rooms.From such a design, while the reconstruction of Yokohama Park Peace Baseball Stadium was under discussion, with (Yokohama) Ocean WhalesLotte OrionsIt can be seen that the idea of ​​sharing Yokohama Stadium as a base with the "double franchise method" was considered.[9].

Before the construction of Yokohama Stadium, there were no large stadiums or concert halls, and Yokohama City was a city behind in the field of sports events and music entertainment, but the completion of Yokohama Stadium greatly contributed to its elimination. did. Over the yearsYokohama International Women's EkidenIt became the departure and arrival venue[Note 4]In addition,J LeagueEarly days1994/IsYokohama FlugelsBy invitationPalmeirasWithPreseason matchWas held.This is the first pre-season match to be used in a professional soccer match, and since it was assumed that natural turf would be manually laid on the artificial turf ground the day before the match, a field in Kanagawa Prefecture had been around for about two years before the event. It is said that he was growing the amount of natural turf for 2 large trucks after renting[10].

It is also used as a venue for many concerts, and many famous artists from Japan and overseas have performed large-scale concerts. It is a domestic popular rock bandTUBE The1988/Since 1990, it has been performing live at Yokohama Stadium every August for more than 30 years, and it has become a summer tradition, and there is about one group of other popular domestic artists every summer.[Note 5]We hold outdoor concerts. in addition2006/から2009/,2011/ToYokohama Reggae FestivalWas also held. However, at the Yokohama Stadium without a roof, it is easy to decide whether to hold the event depending on the weather, there is also a noise problem in the neighborhood, and it is difficult to attract customers according to the facility that accommodates 3 people,Yokohama Arena,Yokohama International StadiumWas completed1990 eraSince then, the number of opportunities used in large-scale events other than baseball has been decreasing, but from 2014 to 2015SCRAPIt is a sensory experience-based mystery solving eventReal escape gameAs an outdoor tour of 2014Attack on TitanCollaboration withEscape from a fortified city Yokohama performance』But 2015ONE-PIECECollaboration withEscape from the summit war Yokohama performanceWas held and was used as the venue for the real escape game outdoor tour Yokohama performance.

Building coverage problem

The three-dimensional appearance of the building is not the vertical one seen in other baseball fields, but an inverted cone with a wide upper side and a narrow lower side. this isCity Park Law"Athletic facilities in city parks" stipulated in Article 6, Paragraph 1, Item 1 of the Enforcement OrdinanceBuilding rateAccording to "regulation", the building coverage ratio is calculated based on the bottom of the stand.[Note 6]It is a so-called painstaking measure for this purpose, and various distinctive designs are made to solve the problem of area.

Also, compared to the so-called "international standard" baseball stadiums built after the 1990s, it has long been pointed out that the number of spectators is small and the ground area is small, but it is limited by law.[Note 7]Since it was designed with the above, it was practically impossible to add spectator seats accompanying the addition of a stand and to expand the ground area accompanying a structural change of the stand, unless the law was revised. The building coverage ratio was eased to 2012% due to the revision of the law[Note 8].

For the above reasons, the bullpen exists under the outfield stand because it was not possible to secure a place behind the dugout or in the ground.Since the bullpen faces Yokohama Park just by separating the blindfold tent and the iron fence to prevent intrusion, you can hear the catching sound of the relief pitcher and the cry of the bullpen catcher from outside the stadium.Since there is no connection between the dugout and the bullpen, relief pitchers, both professional and amateur, must wait in the bullpen before the match or walk to the bullpen on the foul ground when changing offense and defense during the match. ..

Usually when changing pitchers in professional gamesRelief carTo use. When the stadium was bornNissan Motor OfBluebird Model 910Convertible[Note 9]And then the companyBe-1,Escargot,ToyotaSports carMR-SFrom the 2017 season,Nissan leafI am using a modified version of[Note 10].

As a result of adopting a structure in which the bullpen is stored under the outfield stand, the outfield fence at Yokohama Stadium is as high as a dome stadium.[Note 11]Reached 5 meters.For this reason, the hit ball that bounced on the ground crossed the fence.Entitle to baseIt is very unlikely that you will get to, and it is also impossible to catch a fly by climbing on the fence (Because the fence of the infield exciting seat is low, entitle-to-base has happened several times.[Note 12]).Although the fence is high, the depth of the outfield stand is narrow, so if you are a professional power hitter, you can hit an outfield home run (Details later).

Was this high fence a disaster?2009/May 8In the Yokohama-Hanshin Tigers event, a drunken spectator overcame a fence 1 meter from the light stand and fell to the ground 5 meters below, resulting in an accident that killed two days later.[11].

Cons and Pros

As mentioned above, there are not a few design difficulties for clearing laws and regulations, and the following wrinkles are occurring.

  • Since the outfield stand has a steep slope, it is difficult for infants, the elderly, and people with lower limbs to watch the game.
  • Since the scoreboard is installed in the front row of the outfield seats, some of the outfield seats and infield seats are difficult to see or there are places that cannot be seen at all.[Note 13].
  • At other professional baseball baseball stadiums, the scoreboard has been upgraded, such as by increasing the size of the scoreboard, but as mentioned above, expansion work is difficult, so the repair is limited to the existing size.
  • The back screen is just behind the outfield fence (only a few tens of centimeters in height), and a yellow identification line is drawn at the top of the fence, but it is sometimes difficult to distinguish the ball hit into the stepped portion.2009/ToChunichi Dragons OfToni BlancoHit a ball here, but it was decided not to be an over fence. Was a director at the timeHiromitsu Ochiai"We should change to a structure that makes it easy to identify whether it is an over fence or not," commented the reporters. From the 2010 season on the stepsandbagIs placed to make it easy to determine whether the fence is over fence or not by the bounce of the ball hitting the sandbag.
  • It is difficult to leave the seat during the match because the space between the front and rear seats is narrow in both the inner and outer fields (excluding some areas).
  • Due to the narrow concourse, there are few shops and toilets, and the aisles and gates are very crowded at the end of the game.

There are many other inconveniences from the standpoint of the audience, and it is hard to say that this is a stadium where you can enjoy watching the game comfortably.

  • At the beginning of the opening, the left and right outfield stands were connected to each other through the aisle behind the scoreboard, but because the aisle was closed and completely divided to prevent trouble, it is not possible to move between the right side spectator seat and the left side spectator seat in principle. .. However, if a portion of the left-side spectator seats are designated as "DB reserved seats" for Baystars fan seats, the entrance gate will be on the right side even when observing in the left-side spectator seats, so move to the left-side spectator seats. You will use the passage to do this.
  • Blind spots near both wings tend to be blind spots from any position on the stand.For example, if you sit in the first base side infield seat or the light side outfield seat, it will be difficult to understand whether it is fair or foul if you hit the light line. I can't see the outfielder's ball hit processing. This problem is unavoidable when the seats on the outfield side of the infield seats are oriented between the batteries, and in many new stadiums for professionals in recent years, the seating direction is often prioritized over this problem.

On the other hand, the following points are considered to be advantageous compared to other stadiums.

Gehrig and Ruth relief

At Yokohama Stadium, once at the pole of the outfield left standBabe RuthThe relief of the pole of the light standLou GehrigReliefs were installed respectively.This is called Loose or Gehrig as described later.Major league baseballIt is a memorial to the star who has made a name for himself in the history of Japan.Currently, it is exhibited in the infield (STAR ​​SIDE side) concourse in the hall.

Plate installation for players entering the famous ball game

2006/FromMeikyukaiA ball-patterned plate with the names of the Whales and BayStars players who entered was installed on the Wright outfield stand to praise the achievements.Initially it was installed on the outfield fence, but it was moved to the upper part of the outfield seat with the introduction of Ribbon Vision from the 2012 season.

The arrangement is as follows, from the middle right to the light pole.


Shops are located on the second floor of the infield stand and on the first floor of the outfield stand. Infield stand on the first base sideThirty one ice creamHowever, on the third base sideKentucky Fried ChickenThere are both first and third basesDomino pizzaIs opening in a wagon format[Note 14].. The beef bowl that was sold in the venue was sold until around 2000.YoshinoyaFrom about 2001NakauHowever, both are now withdrawn.

"Mikan Ice" sold in the stadium is a specialty.Ice flakes with syrupOn top of thecanning OfMandarin orangeA cup of canned mandarin orange syrup is sprinkled on top of it for 350 yen.Especially midsummer day games andHigh school baseball Kanagawa tournamentIn that case, there will be a long line at the sales floor. Until 2009, it was sold at Uchino stand on the 1,3st and 2004rd base side (until 3, only the 2010rd base side), but since XNUMX, it is also sold at the outfield store.2007/From 1st base only, but canned instead of mandarin orangespineapple"Pineapple Ice" using syrup was released. Just like the Mikan Ice, this is 350 yen.

In addition to "Mikan Ice", the stadium's original menu has been very rich since DeNA was involved in the operation of the stadium, and the original beers "BayStars Ale" and "BayStars Lager" are also sold in bottles for souvenirs. , The curry "Aosei Dormitory Curry" that players are eating at the BayStars player dormitory "Aosei Dormitory" sells canned souvenirs and is actually a public elementary school in Yokohama City.School lunchHas been issued as.In addition, new menus such as "Baykara", "Baymenchi", and "Bay dumplings" have also appeared and are gaining popularity.

Sakiyoken OfShimai lunchThe original paper for Yokohama Stadium is used (however, 800 yen, which is 100 yen higher than the regular price of 900 yen).At the Kiyoken stand at Kannai station, it is sold at a fixed price, but the hanging paper is normal.

On the 3rd floor in the middle of the infield seats, there is the "Cafe Victory Court," which was a renovation of an existing restaurant in 2005, and the interior is decorated with successive uniforms of the Whales and BayStars and the winning pennants.

Due to the steep slope of the stand, draft beer tank server sales have not been carried out in the audience for many years, but tank sales started in the 2013 season.In principle, one cup is 1 yen.

The snacks sold by the beer sales staff in the venue areChikuwaAnd localMinoya hail manufacturing main officeThere are two types of beer persimmon. 2 yen including tax.

PET bottled beverages are sold at vending machines and wagons in the stadium (most other stadiums prohibit bringing in and selling PET bottles from the viewpoint of preventing throwing).

Currently, the official shop of the baseball stadium is open outside the stadium, but for a while after the stadium opened, it is rare at that time under the name of "Major League Shop".Major LeagueGoods were also available.

History of the stadium

Background to construction

Before the Yokohama Stadium was built, here1929/Was completed inYokohama Park Peace Baseball StadiumThere was a (common name: Peace Stadium). This peace stadium will beUS-Japan baseballThe predecessor ofUS Major LeagueA friendly match between the selection and Japan National Team was held,Babe Ruth,Lou GehrigThe star player of those days visited and played. HoweverPacific Warrear,U.S. ForcesAfter being requisitioned by Yokohama after being requisitioned by1970 eraAt the beginning, almost half of the stand was unusable.

At the same time, in Kanagawa prefecture at that timeProtected areaHadOcean WhalesFeels a limit to its ability to attract customers at its base, Kawasaki Stadium, and was planning to move to Yokohama, the most well-known city in the prefecture. Therefore, on November 1972, 11, the Taiyo team made an offer to Yokohama city, saying "I would like to relocate my base from Kawasaki when the Yokohama Peace Stadium is rebuilt," and was the mayor of Yokohama at that time.Kazuo AsukadaI exchanged a memorandum with the consent of.

New stadium construction

Mayor Asukada was not willing to build a new stadium due to the intention of relocating the ocean, but from the timePrimary oil shockAs a result, Yokohama's finances were tight, and it was impossible for the city to independently budget for construction. Also, at that timeMinatomirai districtThe construction of the building was still in the conceptual stage, and there is no prospect of returning it anywhere in the city.U.S. ForcesRequisition areas were also scattered, and there was no land other than Yokohama Park that could secure the same traffic access.

Therefore, the construction of the stadium was inevitably followed by the rebuilding of the equal stadium, but in order to dismantle the peace stadium and build a stadium on a scale that can also hold professional baseball, the building coverage ratio of the park building Restrictions or competent authoritiesMinistry of ConstructionThere were various hurdles other than the financial aspect, such as negotiations with the company and the issue of the alternative site for the facilities in Yokohama Park, which was forced to relocate due to the construction of the stadium, such as the Kanagawa Prefectural Budokan. Above all, when evacuating the US Army Yokohama Chapel Center in Yokohama Park,Japanese GovernmentIn addition to theUS Army in JapanAdjustment was also necessary.

Start construction

However, due to the mediation of Mayor AsukadaSeibu GroupIs the general ofYoshiaki TsutsumiNational land planWhen the president announced that he would hold a part of the stock of the Taiyo team (about 45%) and finance the construction fund of 3 million yen, the momentum of rebuilding will begin to accelerate rapidly. Eventually, Asukada et al.'s rush to solve problems other than money one by one. In addition to the support by Tsutsumi, we also invited shareholders from citizens.[Note 15][12],1977/finallyThird sectorThe corporate management company "Yokohama Stadium Co., Ltd." is established. Then, on April 1977, 4, the Ministry of Finance approved the city's reconstruction plan and construction of the stadium was started.

Normally, it takes about two years for a building of this scale, but Yokohama Stadium will have a very short construction period of about one year including the dismantling of the Heiwa Stadium in order to meet the opening of professional baseball the following year. It will be. Therefore, at the beginning of constructionGeneral contractorbyJoint ventureHowever, due to the construction period, a total of 11 general contractors gathered, and construction work was carried out under a super-rush system. By law, it is not possible to set up a facility operated by a company on public land, so after construction is done by Yokohama Stadium Company, the facility is temporarily transferred to Yokohama City free of charge and operated by Yokohama Stadium Company. Was taken. When dismantling the peace stadium, the scoreboardFujisawa City Yabe Baseball FieldWas relocated to and was used for about 10 years.

During this time, the Pacific team[Note 16] Announced on June 6 that it is considering the move to Yokohama. Then, on August 15, Kawasaki City officially notified that the Yokohama Stadium would be a dedicated stadium from 8. However, Kawasaki City was fiercely opposed to the fact that the Ocean side had been unilaterally notified that Kawasaki City had not given consideration to it. In the cityDon't just use it as a cityA campaign was put up to protest against the relocation by using the catchphrase, and it became the situation of collecting 54 signatures, which is about half of the city's population at that time.


Construction work was completed as planned, and on March 1978, 3, Yokohama Stadium was completed. On April 31 of the same yearFlutterYokohama Ocean Whales (renamed due to relocation)Yomiuri GiantsThe official first round of theAkio SaitoThe local ocean won the 4-1 victory and added flowers. Kazuo Asukada, who worked for construction as the former mayor, was the opening ball ceremony of this match (the status at this time wasJapan Socialist Party Chairman) Is doing.

Lotte sharing problem

When the construction of Yokohama Stadium was officially decided,Pacific League OfLotte OrionsMade a request to Taiyo, "I would like to share Yokohama Stadium with Lotte as the headquarters and hold an official game of about 40 games per year."

Lotte is1972/OffTokyo stadiumWas closed from 1973MiyagiSendai city OfMiyagi Stadium(Current: Rakuten Life Park Miyagi =Tohoku Rakuten Golden EaglesHeadquarters)[Note 17]I was trying. But at that timeTohoku ShinkansenWas unopened and airplanes were not as easy a mode of transportation as it is now, with 6 out of 4 teams (Nankai Hawks,Kintetsu Buffaloes,Hankyu Braves,Crown writer lions) Is based in Western Japan, and the number of spectators in each team was so low that it could not be compared to the present. It was a heavy burden. Therefore, the construction of Yokohama Stadium was an opportunity for Lotte to cross the boat.

On the other hand, Taiyo, who was supposed to use the Yokohama stadium alone, was reluctant to Lotte's offer, fearing that it would be restricted in terms of schedule due to sharing. At this time, Taiyo had already made a formal notification of the move to Kawasaki City, so Yokohama City wants to get the economic effect of professional baseball entertainment, Kawasaki City does not want to lose it, and Yokohama has the second largest population in the country. Ocean and Lotte teams who want to grow their lives, the conspiracy of the above four people intermingled, and the media and others are paying attention[Note 18]Negotiations continued until the completion of construction. However, the advantage of the ocean with the regional protection right in Kanagawa prefecture has not been overturned until the end, and although Lotte's transfer of protected area to Kanagawa prefecture was allowed, Yokohama Stadium became a dedicated ballpark of the ocean as originally planned, and Lotte Kawasaki Stadium[Note 19]It was decided to calm down.

Even after the settlement of the headquarters problem, Kawasaki City and the ocean were in a semi-insulated state due to the fact that the ocean was confused without consideration before and after the announcement of the move to Yokohama. For this reason, two official games hosted by the Ocean at Kawasaki Stadium were held in 1978, when they moved to Yokohama.[13], The following year, from 1979 to 1992, no match was formed and it became the "Yokohama Bay Stars" on August 1, 1993 for the first time in 8 years, including the Pacific era.Hanshin TigersAlthough a battle was formed, it was canceled in the rain[Note 20]Even after that, the Yokohama-sponsored official match has never been held[Note 21]In 2000, the seats of the Kawasaki Stadium were dismantled.

Owner's seat

At the time of construction of the stadium, both Kanagawa Prefecture and Yokohama City at the time suffered from financial difficulties, and instead of operating directly as public administration (prefectural management or municipal management), mainly the administration, corporations and groups including Yokohama City didThird sectorEstablished the operating company "Yokohama Stadium Co., Ltd.", and after the stadium operating company constructed the facilities, donated to Yokohama City after completion. After the opening, the stadium management company contracted for 45 years from the city (1978/-2023/) At the de facto "Public privatizationIs in the form of For the investment of this stadium management company, one share of 1 yen × 500 shares = 5000 million yen was recruited from citizens, corporations and groups, and the ownership right of the "owner's seat" was presented as a privilege.

This owner's seat is free to enter the official games and open games held at this stadium for all the Pacific Ocean games (→Yokohama→DeNA) all team games (around 60 games a year) for 45 years until the renting period of the stadium expires.・You can watch games. Tender offer was made2015/12At that time, the total number of shareholders was 554, with a total of 2023 individuals, corporations and organizations registered as shareholders, but a little less than half of them were individuals. Even if DNA and the DeNA baseball team became the operating bodies through the tender offer for the stadium, the owners seat will expire in XNUMX from the viewpoint that it will continue to be a separate contract with the shares of the operating company. Is supposed to be available[14].

DeNA's "Community Ball Park Concept" and Acquisition of Operating Company

Since its opening in 1978, Yokohama Stadium Co., Ltd. (hereinafter abbreviated as “Operating Company”) has the right to sell goods on the premises, advertising revenue, and set stadium usage fees. Under these conditions, Yokohama Ocean Whales, Yokohama Baystars, and Yokohama DeNA Baystars have entered into a contract with the operating company to use the stadium as their headquarters.

2002/からTBS HoldingsNegotiations to sell the management rights of Yokohama BayStars held by (TBS)2010/), it was found in some reports that the above contract is putting pressure on the management of the team as a result of the stadium fee and advertising/sales revenue not entering the team side.[15].2011/Acquired the management rights of Baystars from TBS after the end of the professional baseball seasonDNAIn addition to holding 5.74% of the issued shares of the operating company,Makoto Haruta 2012/Before the start of the seasonHiroshi TsuruokaMeeting with the president. It is necessary to reduce the stadium fee, which is considered to be higher than the other NPB baseball team's hometown, to 13% of the entrance fee income, and to include the new sponsor income for signboard advertisements and the sales income from permanent stores outside the venue into the baseball team. Signed a 7-year stadium usage contract[16].

2015/In the fiscal year ended March 3, DNA posted a deficit of 13 billion yen in the baseball business related to Baystars. On the other hand, in the same year's professional baseball season, the Baystars-sponsored official match at the stadium achieved 43 times of full capacity (the highest record of the season). The cumulative number of spectators in official competitions, including those held at other stadiums, was about 181, an increase of 3,800 times from before the acquisition of management rights.[17]Therefore, we expected to reduce the aforementioned deficit by half.[18].. In August,2016/After that, with the view of laying natural grass on the infield and outfield grounds, officials of the team and the operating companyMLBIt was reported that he was visiting the home field of the baseball team[19].

Under such a background and the "community ball park concept" of the stadium, DeNA is seeking to operate the baseball team and the stadium in an integrated manner with the aim of increasing income in the baseball business.2015/May 10Has a total of 100 billion yen to hold a majority of the issued shares of the operating company.Friendly TOBHas reached a basic agreement with the company[20][21].. same yearMay 11Will carry out a friendly TOB to the operating company through the baseball team.[18].2016/May 1By the time the deadline of28th of the same monthThe name was changed to a consolidated subsidiary (sub-company) of DNA.[7][22].

In addition, after the name change of the operating company, it will be transferred to an integrated management system of the baseball team and stadium by DNA. Improving the management of the team by directly securing the sales of goods and advertising revenue in the venue, and major renovation of the stadium (2017/Laying natural grass and increasing the number of spectators seats planned thereafter[23]Etc.) is expected to accelerate decision-making[24]..

Since the stadium is located in Yokohama Park, which is managed by Yokohama City, the city will approve the plan and start the renovation work from November 2017, after the end of the 11 professional baseball season. The construction was completed in February 25, three years after the start of construction, as construction proceeded mainly in the off season of professional baseball. As a result, the stadium can accommodate up to about 3 people before construction and up to 2020 people at the time of the NPB official game.[25]..According to Kenmune Fujii (whose title was at that time), who is the president of the operating company, the construction was delayed enough to worry about the start of the next 2018 NPB regular season at the end of 2019, but at the end of 2019 It is said that the construction from[26].

In the month following the completion of construction (March 2020), DeNAFukuoka Softbank HawksStarting from the battle (day game starting at 13:00),Open battleUsed in 4 games. At the beginning, we planned to open the stand to the spectators for a fee for all four games, but from the beginning of 4 in Yokohama city and in JapanInfection with the new coronavirusBased on the spread ofUnaided matchHeld as[27].. In addition, the opening of the NPB regular season, which was scheduled for March 2021th in 3 after the Summer Tokyo Olympics, was postponed until June 20th (both Fridays). Actually, we used this stadium in the "practice game" (6 games of unattended day games) that was organized in early June just before the opening, but at NPB, until Thursday, July 19th (others). Audiences were not admitted in all one-armed battles (including those held at the stadium). For this reason, DeNA will conditionally start paying for the stands up to 6 people from the game hosted by the Giants on July 7th (night game with giants). During the time when the Summer Tokyo Olympics were scheduled to be held (July 7-August 9), seven DeNA home games were played at this stadium (all night games started at 7:17). In addition, since the game held on September 5,000th, the NPB baseball team was allowed to set its own spectator capacity in the range of 7-23% at the stadium when the official game was hosted, so DeNA will increase the capacity. Set to 8% (up to 10 people). In the day game with the giant held on the same day, the outfield seats were opened to the public for the first time after the renovation was completed, provided that the spectators were sent off in order for each stand area after the match was over.[28].

This stadium has been treated as the main stadium since it opened in 1978National High School Baseball Championship Kanagawa TournamentRegarding the event, we will not be using this stadium only in 2020 when a part of the holding period overlaps with the Tokyo Olympic Games,Hodogaya StadiumWas decided to be implemented in[29].. However, in addition to the above circumstances,Japan High School Baseball Federation The 102rd National High School Baseball ChampionshipAnd all local conventions are cancelled. In contrast, the Kanagawa Prefectural High School Baseball Federation, which hosts the Kanagawa tournament, will take place as an alternative tournament on August 8-1.Kanagawa Prefectural High School Baseball TournamentWas held (the opening and closing ceremonies scheduled for the Kanagawa Games were not held). At this stadium, a part of the tournament period is hosted by DeNA, a night game that starts at 18:00 (August 8-4: Battle against China-Japan, 6-10: Battle against Hanshin, 12-14: Battle against Yakult) ), but from the originally planned championship Kanagawa tournament, in the alternative tournament other days (such as one day) are used in some games.

In addition, at the DeNA vs. Hanshin 2020 consecutive battles held from October 10, 30, a technical demonstration regarding the risk of infection with the new coronavirus of the spectators was carried out. After setting the upper limit of the accommodation rate to 3% for the 30th event, 80% for the 31st event, and 90% (full) for the November 11st event, the spectator's mask wearing situation in the stand is highly accurate. In addition to investigating through a camera, the effects of splashes caused by cheering when wearing a mask were analyzed using a supercomputer.In addition, while utilizing QR codes and location information, we can grasp the common facilities in the stadium and the flow of people in the vicinity.In addition to trying to guide the spectators to avoid congestion, after the match among the visitorsCluster (infected population)If is confirmed, contact confirmation app or contact confirmation app at the time of admissionLINEIt was supposed to notify the visitors who had completed the registration at.The above demonstrations are from the public and private sectors (Government of Japan, Kanagawa Prefecture, Yokohama City, DeNA, LINE,NEC,KDDI), And the stadium will be used as a venue for baseball competitions even after the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics, and was approved by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare's Coronavirus Infectious Diseases Control Subcommittee on the 15th of the same month.Based on the results of the demonstration, the government was supposed to consider whether or not to relax the admission restrictions at other stadiums and large-scale event venues other than baseball.[30][31]..However, the actual number of visitors was 10 on October 30 (about 1% of the capacity of 6,594).[32], 31st was 2 (about 4,537%)[33], 11 people (about 1%) on November 2st, did not reach the upper limit of the accommodation rate for all three days[34].

In the year following the Tokyo Olympics (2022), DeNA started the regular season of the 3st Army with 3 consecutive battles against Hiroshima at this stadium. Only the opening game on Friday, March 25, was a night game, and the total number of paying visitors for the same day reached 32,436, the highest number in the history of the stadium.In addition to increasing the number of people accommodated by increasing the number of stands due to the above-mentioned renovation work, Kanagawa Prefecture issued an announcement on Friday, January 1st throughout the prefecture.Priority measures such as prevention of spreadDue to the fact that the accommodation rate was returned to 3% from the opening round based on the cancellation of (March 22nd)[35].

For this reason, fans who didn't buy tickets screamed that the number of spectators in Yokohama Stadium was small.[Note 29], The fans who were able to enter also complained about the narrowness of the facility. Multiplied by thisTakanobu HidenobuThe mayor of Yokohama (at that time)Minatomirai district(60・61 Block) Proposed the construction of a new stadium on the premise of a multipurpose dome[Note 30]The local business groups such as the Yokohama Chamber of Commerce and Industry have responded.
