Anomalous schedule

The following is an example of an irregular event schedule and venue.

  1. 1950Venue changed for each match. From the first roundMeiji Jingu Stadium,Korakuen Stadium,Hanshin Koshien Stadium,Hankyu Nishinomiya Stadium,Chunichi Stadium,Osaka StadiumEach stadium of. 4 wins and 2 losses this yearOrions every dayWon the first champion, but in Round 6Shochiku RobinsWhen he won and became 3 wins and 3 losses, the 7th round was scheduled to be held at Korakuen Stadium (details of whether it is a consecutive battle or a moving day are unknown).
  2. 1953Was normal until Round 4, but Rounds 5 to 7 were at Osaka Stadium and Hanshin Koshien Stadium.[Note 5], Korakuen Stadium was held in that order. According to the regulations at that time, "The stadiums used in the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th games and the 2nd, 4th, and 6th games are designated by both leagues alternately every year. However, the 1st and 2st games are designated. The stadiums used in the 3nd and 4rd games, the 5th game and the 6th and 6346th games will be designated as stadiums in the same area in succession. " The right to specify the stadium for even-numbered games this year was in the Central League, and there was a speculation that "Koshien, which has a larger capacity than Osaka, has higher profitability", but that speculation was dismissed, and the number of visitors was XNUMX. It was a person. This yearUS-Japan baseballWas organized in two tournaments[Note 6]Due to the influence, there was no movement / rest day that should be set up, and it was a forced march that moved every two games on the day of the game.
  3. 1962Round 5 sponsored by Toei and1978All four games sponsored by Yakult were held at Korakuen Stadium as a substitute for the convenience of holding student baseball at Jingu Stadium.
  4. 1974Lotte-sponsored Rounds 3 to 5 were registered as home bases due to facility problems.Prefectural Miyagi StadiumInstead of using Korakuen Stadium[Note 7].
  5. 1979,1980All Kintetsu-sponsored games were homeNippon Life StadiumThe capacity of the Japan Series was less than 3, which is the standard for holding the Japan Series.[Note 8], Also owned by KintetsuFujiidera StadiumBecause the lighting equipment for night games was not installed, the event was held at the Osaka Stadium, which is the home of the Nankai Hawks.
  6. 1981Since the participating teams of both leagues were Giants and Nippon-Ham, both of whom are based in Korakuen Stadium, all six races were held at the same stadium and were called the "Korakuen Series".
  7. 1986は第1戦は引き分けで始まり広島が3連勝したが、西武も3連勝し第7戦終了時点で3勝3敗1分になり、急遽第7戦で使用した旧広島市民球場で初の第8戦以降を行って勝敗を決することとなった。第8戦で西武が勝利し決着がついたが、当時のルールでは第8戦以降も回数無制限ではなく、仮に引き分けならば1日の移動日を設けて西武ライオンズ球場で第9戦以降も行うことになっていた。
  8. 2000Was a match between Giants and Daiei, but three years ago1997I was looking for a venue for a large international academic meetingJapan Neurosurgical Society2000 when the Fukuoka Dome side, which received a loan request fromMay 10から27 daysWas already rented out without the permission of the team. This is in anticipation that the Hawks were unlikely to win the league in 1997 because they were in the B class for the 20th consecutive year since the Nankai era. However, in 1998, the team entered the A class for the first time after moving to Fukuoka, and the possibility of holding the Japan Series increased, so the team requested the Japan Neurosurgical Society to change the schedule, but more than 2 people from each country gathered. It was a large-scale general meeting, and it was refused because various related arrangements had already been completed. So the Daiei teamNakauchi TadashiActing owner (at that time) on the NPB side "replacement of the series venue", "change of the series schedule itself", "held at the baseball stadium of other Pacific League teams", "Kitakyushu City Stadium,Nagasaki Big N StadiumWe offered to hold the event at other stadiums in Kyushu, but all of them were rejected. We also received cooperation from the Brain Science Society, such as shortening some schedules and opening up time zones."Tokyo de, Tokyo de, Fukuoka de, holiday, rest, Fukuoka de, Fukuoka de, Tokyo de, Tokyo de"It is possible to do it on an irregular schedule for 9 days without a moving dayMay 8Was announced in. After the series ended, the Daiei baseball team was charged with a sanction of 3,000 million yen (the maximum amount of sanctions for the team or individuals) from the NPB for failing to secure the schedule.

In place of Kintetsu, which merged and disappeared without being the best in Japan even once in 2004, Rakuten, which newly joined in 1, became the best in Japan in the 2005 series.All 12 teams that are members of NPB for the first time since the establishment of NPB have all experienced the best in Japan.But this isMajor LeagueThen, 7 out of all the teams have not achieved the best in the world (among them)Seattle MarinersIs the best in the world, let alone the World Series), and is a rare record in the world that has never been achieved.

TV broadcast

Terrestrial series national broadcasting

Until 2010, it basically negotiated directly with the broadcasting station recommended by the home game team, and was broadcast live nationwide from the start to the end of the game by the network to which the broadcasting station belongs (usually the station that frequently broadcasts the regular season). Recommended and broadcast live). However2010 Japan SeriesIn response to the fact that there were three games in which terrestrial broadcasting was not carried out nationwide, in 3, the advance team recommended a broadcasting station, and then the TV broadcasting sponsorship sponsorAdvertising agencyAdopted a method of conducting relay negotiations with the broadcasting station[16](Nevertheless, stations that regularly broadcast in the regular season are still preferentially recommended). In subsequent broadcasts, there have been cases where the match start time has been advanced due to the convenience of the broadcasting station's program organization (2011st round in 1, 2016th round in 5). In addition to regular baseball commentators, active players and managers of non-participating teams will appear as guest commentators in the broadcast.

Until the 1990s, the audience rating was highly popular, with an average of around 30%, but since the 2000s it has gradually declined, and since the 2010s it is not uncommon for some cards to take single digits, 2019. In 2020, 4 out of 3 games set the worst single-digit ratings record.[17]..On the other hand, as in the regular season, it often gets high ratings in areas other than Kanto where the participating teams are based.[18].

  • Central LeagueIn the teamYomiuri Giants(NTV),Chunichi Dragons(CBC TV, Tokai TV, TV Aichi, Mie TV),Tokyo Yakult Swallows(Fuji Television Network, Inc),Yokohama DeNA BaystarsCertain broadcasting stations, such as (TBS TV), are given the right to broadcast games hosted by their home base. If these teams participate in the Japan Series,As with the regular season, broadcasting rights are always recommended for affiliated stations of the network to which these broadcasting stations belong... Especially in the case of Yomiuri Giants and Chunichi Dragons, because they are affiliated with newspaper companies, they are very tightly locked out from affiliated stations, and it is so thorough that broadcasting stations that are not given broadcasting rights are not recommended to broadcast the Japan Series.[Note 12].
  • Hanshin TigersHiroshima Toyo CarpBroadcast rights are evenly distributed to each station, but in the case of the Hanshin TigersAsahi Broadcasting TVPrioritizes the broadcasting rights of the games on Wednesday and Sunday, and the broadcasting rights when the Hanshin Tigers participate in the Japan Series follow that.[Note 13]..Therefore, in the games held by the Central League team, the TV Asahi affiliated stations are recommended for the games on Wednesday and Sunday in principle when the Hanshin Tigers participate in the Japan Series.[Note 14], If Hiroshima Toyo Carp participates, Tokyo Yakult Swallows will participate, and it will be almost limited to some games held at the base when Fuji TV does not monopolize due to organizational reasons.

  • Since 1970 and 1974 were held during the daytime, and some stations were in the time zone of local sales, we went to local stations that have strong ties to the 12 channels of Tokyo.Program sales(The Chukyo area is originally Nikkei capitalChukyo TVIt was broadcast on, but because the number of UHF viewing households was still small,Nagoya TVBroadcast at.

  • However, 6 times after the night game was held (excluding the times when there was no match itself), due to the organization of affiliated stations, live broadcasting is an area where you can watch 5 TV Tokyo affiliated stations and independent prefecture stations in Chukyo and Kinki. In 2003, some local stations sold a 90-minute edited broadcast version and broadcast it at midnight on the day (before dawn the next day), but since 2005, that has not been done, and the series In most prefectures where there is no TV Tokyo, it is not possible to see the actual situation of TV TOKYO (BS Japan → BS TV TOKYO / TX series CS (AT-X,Nikkei CNBC) But it is not relayed)[Note 16].. Also, even if there are affiliated stations, areas that cannot be viewed due to reasons such as no relay station (especially)TV Hokkaido),Cable TV OfRebroadcast outside the areaHowever, since there are areas that cannot be viewed (technical problems, opposition from local affiliated stations, etc.), viewers who want to watch TV TOKYO's broadcast instead of NHK BS1 that is broadcast in parallel said, "If it cannot be broadcast in the entire area, it will be broadcast. There is also a complaint that "you should not take the right." Especially in 2003 and 2007, when the match that got the relay right becomes the championship deciding match, that tendency becomes stronger.
  • 1999 Daiei vs. ChunichiAlso once played the 7th game on TV Tokyo series (produced byTXN Kyushu), But the number of affiliated stations is small, and satellite broadcasting is not widespread (at that time, BS commercial broadcasting was only paid broadcasting WOWOW.

However, Daiei won the championship with 4 wins and 1 loss, and the 7th round itself was not held.
