Management

Match management and schedule

At the time of its inauguration, official games were to be held every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in principle.In principle, night games are used on weekdays and day games are used on holidays. Until 2011, this principle was mostly followed, but in 2, when the interleague game with the NPB2012 army was incorporated, the match was incorporated mainly on Wednesday even in the initial schedule.[66]..In 2, when there were only two games with two independent league teams in Hawaii, the exchange game returned to the past style, which was mainly held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.[67], Since 2, when the interleague game with the NPB2014 army was resumed, the other days of the week have been set as the initial schedule.In addition, although there were cases where weekday day games were incorporated in the initial schedule from the first year,[68], Until 2013, it was held only sporadically (2008 was two games during the Bon Festival)[69], 2009 5 match on May 9th[70], 2012 5 match on May 30th[66], 2013, one match each on May 5th and June 24th[67], 2010 and 2011 none). Since 2014, the number of implementations has increased. As of 2018, weekday day games are organized in the initial schedule with 8 teams excluding Shinano and Ishikawa.[71].

In the case of cancellation in the rain, the transfer match was most often held on Thursday in the first year (24 out of 11 matches).[72]However, it has not been constant since then (for example, in 2008, the maximum number of 26 transfer games was 10 games each on Monday and Thursday.[69], 2009 is the most of the 25 transfer games on Tuesday, 9 games (but 2 games are holidays)[70]).

Double headerWas a game sponsored by Gunma before 2014 in 2011 (twice)[73],Year 2013[74],Year 2014[75]It was carried out a total of 4 times. Although it was cut off for three years from 2015, Musashi implemented an irregular doubleheader with different opponents (Niigata and Gunma) as an alternative to the rainy weather postponement game on September 3, 2018.[76].. In 2020, the number will increase significantly due to the schedule change due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, and 8 double headers will be held in the games hosted by the eight teams of Fukushima, Saitama, Kanagawa, Niigata, Toyama, Ishikawa, Fukui and Shiga. It has been implemented[77].

Prior to 2013, in addition to the official game, there were occasional exchange games with the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) team (farm) (Later). In 2012Yokohama DeNA Baystars (farm)In 2013, the interleague game with Hawaii and the interleague game with Hawaii's independent league were targeted for victory and defeat and individual results as part of the official game schedule. Since 2014, the interleague game with NPB farms (multiple teams) is also subject to victory and defeat / individual results as part of the official game schedule. In 2018, the interleague game with the NPB farm, which is not included in the official game schedule, was held again (Later). In 2020, the interleague game will be completely canceled, and in 2021, it will be held only outside the official league schedule.

extra inningsDo up to 11 times.However, there is a time limit, and if the match time has passed 3 hours and 20 minutes, no new innings will be held.Whether or not to enter a new inning will be decided at the end of the back of the inning, and if there is a tie over the time limit, a draw will be made at the end of the inning.From the start of the league to the 2008 season, if there was a tie at the end of the 9th inning, a tie was drawn and no extended game was held. From the 2009 season, it was changed to a method of overtime (no inning restrictions) under the condition that no new innings are performed after 3 hours and 20 minutes, and it became the current method from 2010. There was no extra time in the 2011 season (due to the Great East Japan Earthquake). Only in the interleague game with the NPB2 army, there is a special provision that if the game is canceled, it will be treated as a draw.[78].

The ranking is determined by the winning percentage on a base excluding the draw.If the top two teams have the same winning percentage at the end of the season, one match will be played at the beginning of the league.play offAnd decided the winning team.However, without any application cases, it was changed to the form in which the superior team wins in the order of (1) the match result of the card in the current period, (2) the difference in goals and goals in the current period, and (3) the total number of points in the current period.[79].. This case occurred for the first time in the Hokuriku area in the first half of 2009, and Ishikawa, who has the advantage of direct competition results, won the championship against Ishikawa and Toyama who lined up with the same winning percentage. Fukui (winner) and Shinano are also subject to this rule in the west area in the first half of 2018.

2007 results

However, the audience mobilization record announced on October 10th after the end of the season was far below the initial target.Although the number was about 19 times that of the first year of the Shikoku Island League, it was far short of the initial target, and measures to attract customers became a major issue.As for the number of mobilization by team, Niigata, which finished at the bottom of the season, is the top among the four teams.On the other hand, Ishikawa, who won the league, was the least, which was the opposite of the team results.

In terms of profits, the initial investment cost was large due to the first year of opening, the number of official sponsors of the league did not reach the target, and the distribution was reduced from the original plan, so the league and each team The financial results were severe, and the total ordinary loss of the five league corporations amounted to about 5 million yen.Under such circumstances, Ishikawa and Shinano secured a large number of team sponsors and shareholders, and as a result of striving to stabilize the balance by concluding a business alliance with the prefecture media, the deficit was significantly reduced compared to the other two teams.

In addition, on July 2009, 7, the income and expenditure report of the league and each team was announced.The total ordinary loss of the seven league corporations was about 1 million yen, which was slightly smaller than the previous year.The existing four teams have succeeded in improving their income and expenditure as a result of efforts to reduce costs.Of the two new teams, Gunma secured a large sponsor, and the amount of ordinary loss was about the same as the existing team even in the first year of establishment.However, Fukui, on the other hand, could not secure enough sponsors to satisfy the operating environment, and the team performance was sluggish and the number of spectators was sluggish, such as finishing at the bottom in both the first half and the second half, and as of the end of May 7, it was about 1 million yen. A cumulative deficit was recorded.For this reason, Fukui's operating company "Sports Community Fukui" renewed its former management team at the extraordinary general meeting of shareholders on July 3700 out of 4 directorsFukui Shimbun(The other is Tetsuji Murayama, the representative of the BC League), and will receive full support from the company (see details).Fukui Miracle Elephant # Management IssuesSee).

2009 results

In 3, the third year of the league, Niigata drastically increased the number of mobilization by gathering 2009 spectators, the largest number in the history of the three domestic independent leagues, in the second round against Shinano (Hard Off Niigata) on July 7. The league as a whole did not reach the pre-opening target of "12 more people than the previous year", and only two teams, Niigata and Ishikawa, increased their mobilization compared to the previous year, and the other four teams all decreased.The reasons for this include the fact that the game scheduled for the weekend due to unseasonable weather was transferred to a night game on weekdays, the number of free invitation tickets distributed to each team was reduced, and the distribution itself was canceled. ..In terms of management, it is expected that sales of both leagues and teams will decrease significantly due to the impact of the recession since the Lehman shock in the fall of the previous year, but due to various cost reduction measures, League 2 The total ordinary loss of the corporation is expected to be around 3 million yen.In the December 15,311 interview article "Challenge of Social Ventures to Change Society" (a site that introduces social contributions, social ventures, and NPOs through business operated by Risoru Co., Ltd.), Murayama said that the league management company " In fiscal 500, it will be in the black at 2 million yen. "However, the cumulative total was 4 million yen up to the previous fiscal year, which means that it is out of insolvency.

Contracts and treatment

The league will try out in November, which is off every year, and the players selected there will be acquired through the league draft meeting.[111].. In 2018, we held a tryout and draft meeting jointly with Shikoku Island League plus.[112]..In the draft, the place of origin, school of origin, and homecoming destination set a "local quota" (up to 1 players per team) for players in the prefecture where the team is located.[112]..In addition to this, there are cases where individual contracts are made to join the group.

The salary to the players will be 3-10 yen per month for the eight months from March to October (individual decision, fluctuations during the season. In the final month, only playoff participation will be paid on a daily basis)[113]..Each playerSole proprietorshipTreated asNational Health InsuranceAndNational pensionWill be subscribed to[113]..This reward is Shikoku Island League plus[114]It is almost the same level as.

There are cases where registered athletes are changed to trainees for reasons such as injury treatment.[115].

At the league 2016th anniversary ceremony held on November 11, 30, league representative Tetsuji Murayama set an age limit of 10 for players from the 2018 season, and each team has a maximum of 26 players.Overage frameClarify the concept of establishing[116], Actually introduced[117].. In the 2020 season, the number of players per team was increased to 27 in consideration of fan support for players over 1 years old, goals for young players, and high play level.[118]..However, on November 11th, after the end of the same year's season, the "overage frame" was abolished in the following 6 season, and the two types of contracts, athletes and trainees, were changed to "A contracts" depending on the compensation and employment availability. Announced that it will be subdivided into "B contract"[119]..The former is cited as a reason for considering relief for athletes who have been deprived of participation opportunities due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection and the significance of older athletes (support from fans and influence on younger athletes).[119].. In the guidelines for the current year announced in March 2021, it is stated that the provisions such as age restrictions will be retained, but these provisions will not be applied in 3 as a proviso.[100].. "A contract" allows you to work instead of paying a minimum of 10 yen from the time of camp (9 or more people in each team), and "B contract" allows you to work while allowing 0 rewards (18 people in each team) Below)[119]..Along with this, at the draft meeting in November 2020, only the A contract will be nominated for the "local quota", and in the normal nomination, only the first round of the A contract will be a bid / lottery method (others will be the Weber method).[120].. According to media reports as of March 2021, only Fukui has unpaid B contract players.[121].

No salary will be paid from the team during the four months from November to February, which is the off-season.[122].. In the BC League, a "career support system" has been set up as an employment support measure, and affiliated temporary staffing companies introduce athletes to work during the off-period, and athletes earn income by working at the companies in each region where they are dispatched.[122]..The main dispatch destinations are inns, ski resorts, food processing industry, brewing industry, etc.[122]..There are also cases of working at a team sponsor company.This career support system not only stabilizes the living base of the athletes who belong to it, but also has the purpose of having them wear a second career after leaving or retiring.Some people do not use this system and continue training while returning to their hometowns and earning income from part-time jobs.

Foreign players

For foreign players, in addition to the cases of participating in the above tryout,The United States of AmericaWe carry out winter league (tryout) in[123]..In addition to that, there are also enrollments with individual contracts.

He belonged to Gunma in July 2010Francisco Caravaillo Orix BuffaloesJoined the[124]..This was the first foreign player to join the NPB in Japan's independent league.

Writer Asachi wrote in a sentence contributed to Yahoo! News in December 2020, and from the past examples of foreign players in the Island League and BC League, there are cases where foreign players in the independent league aim to join NPB.
