Japanese amateur baseball

in JapanAmateur baseballWhat is (amateur or baseball)? Competition or leisureSportsAsbaseballIt refers to the cultural soil in which the activities are carried out, the specific activities of people and groups based on them, and the basic spirit that motivates them.

Even if we take up only the group called amateur baseball, its historical background and culture are recognized for the diversity that was born in the process of development, and it cannot be called amateur baseball at once.Moreover, even from the viewpoint of the environment as a given condition, it cannot be changed by the intention of the development and promotion of baseball.To the last, one of the concepts of sports culture is amateur baseball.

Japan Baseball OrganizationTo superviseProfessional baseballThere are also concepts and definitions for professional baseball such as.In a strict sense, it is a reactionary and limited definition, but in reality, it is often the case that an expert shows a finding entitled "Pro-Am problem", and it is conveniently used in that case.In this case, as a representative organization as a target amateur organization,All Japan Baseball Association,Japan Baseball Federation,All Nippon University Baseball Federation,Japan High School Baseball Federation,All Japan Softball Baseball Federationand so on.


Here, we will describe as an example (using the irony of professional baseball) specific groups that autonomously recognize that they are amateur groups with the greatest common divisor of orientation based on the idea of โ€‹โ€‹developing and promoting baseball.

In a broad sense, everything except professional baseball is targeted, but as an amateur baseball in a narrow senseBaseball-Youth baseballใƒป Working people, general, and others excludingStudent baseball(high school baseball-College baseball) Is an organization that is classified as a so-called "amateur"[1]What he is in control of is called amateur baseball.

In terms of direct interpretation of terms, other than professional baseballAdult baseball-Student baseball(University-University-Vocational school) ใƒป School children's baseball (junior high school ใƒปYouth baseballEtc.), but in general usage in the baseball world and related media in Japan, there are no professional players whose final educational background is after graduating from junior high school, so unless otherwise specified, it is a rigid type. It is often used as a narrow meaning for adult baseball and student baseball.

In terms of organizational structure in JapanAll Japan Baseball AssociationHowever, it is by no means the top organization of all amateur baseball-related organizations in Japan, and it is a rigid type.Adult baseball(Japanese Baseball League)Student baseballIt is an organization that is only targeted at (Japan Student Baseball Association), and is an organization that is organized only to form an amateur all-Japan team as baseball and to participate in the Olympics and international competitions.

Originally, in Japan, baseball for working adults, universities, high schools, vocational schools, boys, and school children has a history of developing independently, and has a history of being operated separately for a long time.Due to these circumstances, even for the same high school students, boys and girls are different, and even among girls, the jurisdiction is different for hardball and softball, and even for the same hardball baseball, the upper organization is completely unrelated to the university and vocational school. (See the list below) Even if you say amateur baseball in a word, there are actually various groups.Regarding participation in international competitionsJapan Olympic Committee(JOC) andJapan Sports AssociationThere are various relationships with (JSPO),National body,Asian GamesParticipation in the sports association requires membership in the sports association, but participation in the Olympics is possible if you are a member of the JOC, which complicates the status of membership.The previous All Japan Baseball Federation is also JOCWorld Baseball Softball ConfederationIs a member of, but is not a member of JSPO.

In addition, clubs and circles in schools and teams with strong recreational colors such as so-called grass baseball teams also fall into the category of amateur baseball, but it is not necessary to compare the organizational and management capabilities of federations and the like compared to those mentioned above. , Federations, etc. are basically nonexistent.National competitions and district competitions sponsored by sports equipment manufacturers are held (see the list below).
