Achievement of minority members

Since there were only two grades to participate in the selection tournament, there were occasional high school advancements where the total number of members did not reach the benched player limit. In 2(I.e.(Tokushima: 11 members with second place), 1977(Kochi: 12 members were second place winners), and in 1987Great success(Wakayama), 2017Missing(Iwate: Participation in the 21st century frame) participated in the selection competition with 10 members.

Participation of branch schools and coalition teams

The Japan High School Baseball Federation (Takanoren)'s tournament qualification rule states that "participating teams must be representatives of that school", and as a general rule, participation by one school per team is required. Branch schools that cannot form the same team as our school due to problems such as distance can independently join the Takanoren[23].. This example is applied, and there are multiple schools that participated in prefectural conventions, but the schools that have actually participated in national conventions are:1997 selection competitionParticipated inHidaka Nakatsu Branch SchoolOnly (Wakayama), there is no branch school team that participated in the summer championship.

Also, with the 1997 revision of the rulesNational High School Athletic FederationIn accordance with the guidelines set forth in the above, only when schools are consolidated or abolished, the participation of the coalition team by the old and new schools is permitted with the approval of each prefecture's Takano Ren.At the Kochi tournament of the same yearTakaokaUsa branch schoolKochi OceanUnion team participated.On the contrary, the union can be canceled at the request of the baseball club.[Note 19].. Also in 2011Great East Japan EarthquakeThere was a special measure to allow the participation of a combined team by high schools whose number of members decreased due to the disaster.[24].2012 Summer Championship Regional TournamentFrom now on, the conditions have been greatly relaxed, and it has become possible to form a joint team of schools with less than 8 members and to borrow members from other schools.[25][26][27].. There are union teams that participate in each prefecture's competition in these forms, but there is no union team that participated in Koshien in the spring and summer.[Note 20][Note 21].

High school consistent school

There is a special case where you can participate in the practice of the high school baseball club at the junior high school consistent school after the summer competition of the third year of junior high school.[28][29].


There are cases in which local competitions and national competitions are declined due to scandals in participating schools (violence and other problems, violation of school regulations such as exemption from final exams for participating players). These may also be later disposed of by Takanoren. There are also cases in which local participants declined due to unavoidable reasons such as less than the specified number. 8th at the national conventionNiigata merchantBut suddenly sick people continued to appear just before participating, and they declined to participate.

Specializing in summer Koshien

The spring tournament began nine years after the summer tournament.While the number of high schools participating in Koshien in spring and summer increases with each round, some high schools can only participate in Koshien in summer.In principle, unlike the summer of one school in one prefecture, the number of slots in Koshien is narrow in spring, with two or three schools in one district, so it is particularly noticeable in areas where the number of slots is smaller than in summer (eg Tohoku area, Hokushin'etsu area). ).

Rapid advance of a new baseball club

New baseball club (recently[When?]Then mainly co-education of girls' schools) may suddenly win regional and national competitions. At the championship,Komadai Tomakomai(South Hokkaido) in 1966,Akeno(Ibaraki) participated in 1979 in the third year of the founding together. In the selection competition,Yachiyo ShoinIn 1980,Higashi Chikushi GakuenIn 1993,Tamiya KamimiyaParticipated in 2000 in the third year of their founding together.Jemi(Ehime) didn't show outstanding results until the summer of 2, the second year of his founding, but he suddenly won the Shikoku tournament in the autumn of that year, and he continued his good progress in the selection in the spring of 2003, winning the summer, She won the championship second place (both first appearances). In a similar example,Kamimura Gakuen(Kagoshima) 2005 spring selection runner up, etc. Also, in the 2002 summer championship, we made it to the top 2 in the second yearYugakukan(Ishikawa) is actually one year and four months after the wound. Participated in the selection in the spring of 1Soshi Gakuen[Note 40](Okayama), after starting the club in the spring of the previous year, all won their second place in the Autumn China Tournament in their first year, and entered Koshien in the second year of the club. This recordThe record that participated in the national competition at the fastest speed everIs.However, the result was the loss of the first match.In addition, Soshi Gakuen was defeated in the first match of the 2010 and 2011 summer Okayama tournaments, and it was a rare situation that he had not won the summer local tournament even though he had participated in Koshien until he won his first victory in the summer of 2012.

At the 2016 98th Championships, correspondence high schools with campuses all over JapanClark Memorial InternationalHeadquarters school (Fukagawa City, Hokkaido) won the Northern Hokkaido Tournament, and in the third year since its establishment in the spring of 2014, it was the first correspondence high school to participate in the summer Koshien.The school is also a brother school of Soushi Gakuen mentioned above.

2014 ・ Akita representative of the 96th championship ・Kakunodate (2nd generation)With Kakunodate (first generation)Kakudate MinamiMerged and opened in April of this year.As a result, "summer Koshien participation by a high school in the first year of the new merger, which has no experience of participating in Koshien at the predecessor school" was realized, but the merger partner Kakunodate Minami is a girls' school and merged with other co-educated high schools. In the pamphlet issued by Akita Takano Ren, the opening and founding years of Kakunodate (first generation) (opened in 4 and founded in 1) have been taken over.[Note 41].If this example is applied, the first year of the club's founding ... that is, the summer Koshien participation in the first year of the opening of the newly merged school, which was created by merging multiple coeducational high schools with men's hardball baseball clubs that have no Koshien experience, Alternatively, it is unprecedented for high school summer Koshien participation in which all players who have newly entered the competition itself are first graders (as of 1).

Metropolitan High School and Koshien

Tokyo Metropolitan High School could not participate in Koshien until 1974, when the Tokyo tournament, which is the summer qualifying, divided into east and west, and the first appearance was Ace.Takeshi IchikawaWith1980 Summer OfNationalAnd quite slow (MinoshimaLost 0-5.

Also,Selected High School Baseball TournamentIn West TokyoHinoWas not selected as a 2002st century recommended school for three tournaments in 2010, 2017 and 3, but it was not entered.2014Is also selected as the 21st century frame of East TokyoOyamadaiParticipated as a metropolitan high school for the first time. However, none of them, including the aforementioned summer tournament, have been able to win. In other words, only public high schools in Tokyo have not won the Koshien tournament in the tournament that has continued for nearly 100 years, and despite the long history of the Koshien tournament, Koshien is far from the city high school. The reason is that historically Tokyo has many private high schools. Therefore, even if there is a possibility of participating in Koshien at Tokyo Metropolitan High School,Metropolitan starIt is not uncommon to be reported as (Metropolitan High Schoolreference).Including Koyamadai (1949, 2018, 2019) and Yukitani (2009) who have participated in Koshien at the National High School Baseball Championship (Summer Koshien) Tokyo Tournament and East-West Tokyo Tournament.Hibiya(1946 years),Higashiyamato(1978, 1985), Hino (2013) won the runner-up and missed Koshien participation just one step away.

Schools with a school zone that straddles the prefectural border are called "union high schools".Tone merchant(Gunma: Tone-Numata School Union)The 4th Meiji Shrine Baseball TournamentParticipated in (first year of high school division).

Daichi AcademyIs a communication system,Ritsu Co., Ltd.It has become a high school.Although he has participated in part-time and correspondence high school competitions, he has not participated in Koshien and Jingu competitions.As mentioned above, Clark International participates in correspondence high schools, so it is thought that Daichi Gakuen can also participate by registering with Takano Ren.

Participants with experience in college baseball・Participants aged 19 and over

For a while after the national convention was launched,College baseballExperienced people sometimes participated in the tournament. Also earlySelected secondary baseballThen, there was no age limit.

1918, Of the Keio ordinary club (Tokyo) who participated in the national conventionYamaguchi NoboruIt is,Keio UniversityHad experience as a baseball player in college. Yamaguchi was in the fifth year of junior high school when he participated in the national competition, but the rules of university baseball at that time allowed him to participate in college baseball even if he was not a college student. Also,1920,National conventionParticipated inToyokunichuOkata Nisei of (Fukuoka) was 19 years old when he entered,Hosei UniversityHad experience as a baseball player in college. Under the rules of junior high school baseball at that time, there was no age limit for players, and any player could participate if the principal recognized the current student as a representative player, so this phenomenon occurred.

The rules were revised in 1922, and since then, those with experience in college baseball can no longer participate.

1927 years4th selection competitionToTakeo TabeBut,In GuanglingHe is a pitcher at the age of 21. TabeSame year summer championshipWas not able to compete because he was not "aged" and was "limited to one year in another team". Also in 1Summer championshipToKoichi UematsuIs playing at the age of 26 as a player of Chiayi Norin.

Even after the war, there were some exceptions for participation, even though the age limit was exceeded, and there are some players who participated in Koshien.1956Participated in Koshien at the summer tournamentYonago East(Tottori)Yasuo NagashimaFrom the outsideRepatriatorAlthough he was 19 years old when he participated in the tournament, Takanoren has given special consideration one month before the qualifying to allow Nagashima to participate. After that, for those athletes who could not enter high school for more than a year after graduating from junior high school, it is a rule that they can qualify for entry even at the age of 1.1999Participated in Koshien at the spring tournamentMeitoku Gijuku(Kochi) from Brazilreturnee childrenBecause of this, the school year shifted, and at the time of participation in the tournament he was 19 years old (the year when he will be 20 years old), but a special exception was recognized and he participated. This Morioka is from 1980Born earlyHowever, after graduating from junior high school in Brazil, he moved to Kochi Prefecture, where his grandparents were related, aiming for high school baseball in Japan. So, for the time being, to learn JapaneseMeitoku Gijuku Junior High SchoolWas transferred to. When he entered Meitoku Gijuku High School in 1997, the school overlooked premature birth and registered as a player (Morioka was born in 1979 but misidentified as born in 1980), and Takanoren continued to grant permission without noticing it. Therefore, it can be said that it is a special case of the special case, which has the meaning of negligence offsetting. Therefore, Morioka was in his third year at school, but he could not participate in the official games since the third year in 3, when he was in 3. This 1999 Senbatsu second round was defeatedstarfishThe battle was the last official match. It was extremely rare for returnee students to shift their grades by two grades like Morioka (in the spring of 2).Feather blackThe new third grader who participated as the main pitcher was born early in January 3, but the early returnees of Nikkei returned to Japan were conspicuous.

After that, in the spring and summer of 1983Koji NakataAnd Keito Ohwan in the spring of 2010 (bothKonan), in spring 2004Xiao Jie(Nichinan Gakuen), Cai Yu of spring 2014 (Hachinohe Gakuin Kosei), etc., there are some players who participated in the tournament in the year of turning 19 (4 years old as of April 1).TozukiThird-year athletes from local advanced schools such as Yonago Higashi and Yonago Higashi have participated in competitions in the year 3 when they were 19 years old.

The rules have been partially revised from the aforementioned Morioka case.[34].. In the year after graduating from junior high school, for the reason of not going to high school for some reason, high school enrollment will be two years behind normal, at the age of 2 (18 years old as of April 4, until middle school graduationPrimary detention(Including cases where there were two years), the players were changed to be eligible to play until the end of the second year of high school. However, in the Senbatsu tournament, because it has the aspect of both the previous year's tournament and the new year's tournament, it is possible to participate in the Senbatsu tournament final of the year that will be the third grade at the longest. The sea star battle that Morioka participated in was literally held on April 2, the new year, but there are players who entered the school two years laterSchool ageIf the player was born on April 4nd, which is the earliest birthday in the world, he may be able to compete at the age of 2 if he makes it to the top in the Senbatsu competition (20nd grade before the establishment of this system). As a late high school enrollmentLin WeizhuIs known, and Hayashi Weisuke was also born early).

In the year following graduation from junior high school, I did not go to high school for some reason and entered the high school three years later than usual, at the age of 3 (including the case where there was 19 years of primary detention before graduating junior high school). There is no particular handling of athletes.

According to the rules, if a student who has registered as a member of the Takano Ren is transferred for reasons other than valid reasons (such as closing school or moving with a family member), the player will be registered as a player in the official game for one year from the date of transfer to the new school. It is not possible (If you have not registered as a member of Takanoren at the previous school, you can register) Even if you have registered as a member, you can enter the official game if you drop out and re-enter the school and enter another school. However, this measure does not guarantee regular (until the third year of summer) player registration in official games, and player registration is approved only for athletes who have been enrolled in high school or a school equivalent to high school for three years or less. It For example, if you drop out in the middle of one year and enter another school in the following year, you can only register until the fall of the second year unless you participate in the selection competition of the third year (the above-mentioned Ohwan and Xiao fall under this. Unless there is no baseball club at school). Similarly, in the same school, if you transfer from a soft type to a hard type, or a hard type to a soft type, you can not register as a player in the official game for one year (except for cases such as relief of lack of members).

There are special cases (family relocation) that take into account the circumstances of the family, but in the past at the 1998 Autumn China GamesOpen starは一旦は優勝を果たし、明治神宮野球大会にも出場したが、試合に正選手として出場していた選手2名(ともに1998年1月に埼玉県より転入学)が、選手登録できない選手(1998年3月に家族とともに島根県に住民票を移していたが、家族は選手が1998年5月に選手登録されてすぐに埼玉県に住民票を戻しており、家庭の事情とは言い難い)と判明し、この2選手が出場した明治神宮野球大会1回戦までの15試合の記録と秋季中国大会優勝が取り消されたことがある。

Participated in Koshien 6 times or more

Currently, a player can participate in Koshien up to 1 times. However, before the school system reform, the former junior high school can participate in Koshien more than 5 times because it is a five-year system (including high school students immediately after the school system reform), and in theory one player Was able to participate 5 times. The maximum number of appearances (including bench) by one player isToshiaki Okamura, Kuri Nari, Toshimori Mitsubayashi (all in Heian, now Ryukoku Oheian) 9 times[35]In terms of the number of times they participated in the match, with OkamuraShotaro Ogawa(Wakayama Naka, present Wakayama Prefectural Toin High School) 8 times is the best[35].. Masaharu Tanaka (Kusaku Naka, current Wakayama Prefectural Koyo High School, laterAsahi Army) Is in the 1937th consecutive season from the summer of 8 (only with bench), the summer of 194127th competitionThe tournament was for nine consecutive seasons, but it was not realized because the tournament was canceled during the regional tournament due to the influence of the war.[35].. Also, probably because there was no age limit in the early selection tournament, Masashige Kobayashi (Matsumoto Sho, now Matsusho Gakuen) has participated in the tournament 6 times.[35].. After school reform, Tatsuro Tsutsumi (Takamatsu Sho1977~1979),Araki Daisuke(Mr. Waseda1980~1982, Later Yakult Swallows, etc.),Shoichi Ozawa(Mr. Waseda, 1980-1982, Araki and the same player), Tomoji Kuroyanagi (Mr. Waseda, 1980-1982, same as above),Kiyohara Kazuhiro(PL Academy, 1983-1985, Later Seibu Lions and others),Masumi Kuwata(PL Gakuen, 1983-1985, later Yomiuri Giants), Daiki Umeda (Meitoku Gijuku,2002~ 2004), Shogo Tsurukawa (Myotoku Gijuku, 2002-2004), Shunsuke Michibata (Chiben Wakayama,2009~2011[35],Kurokawa Fumiyo, Shintaro Nishikawa,Junpei Higashizuma(Chiben Wakayama2017~2019[36]Of 12 people. In the summer of Tsutsumi, Kuroyanagi and Higashizuma, only a bench is available.

Baseball study abroad

Examples of going to a specific school in a distant prefecture, whether public or private, from a prefecture that lived in junior high school with a guardian, or went to a high school in another area with "sports recommendation" Increased. These are generallyBaseball study abroadAlthough it is called, "To study abroad in baseball in high school baseball is "a person who is not a commuter from home where the parents live together".[37], Even if the student is from a junior high school in another prefecture,Cross-border schoolTherefore, even if a player who goes to a local high school and leaves the parent's room and lives in a dormitory or boarding house, all of them will be able to study baseball.

This was before the warHeichi Sato(Ikueisho),Eiji SawamuraThere were examples such as studying abroad in baseball like (Kyoto Sho), and there were many schools themselves, so there was no choice but to go to a distant school and join a baseball club. There were many examples). Since more than half of the players were students from outside the prefecture at multiple participating schools in the 1990 62nd selection tournament, at the Education Committee of the House of Representatives held after the selection tournamentSocialist Party OfReijiro SawatoRepresentatives touched on studying abroad in baseball and asked the Ministry of Education if such a thing (study in baseball) could be fulfilled.[37].. In response to discussions by the Education Board of Education, Takanoren issued a notice from high school in May 1990 that warns of solicitation of junior high school students.[37].

Previously, when Takanoren asked the students who are enrolled from outside the prefecture the reason, it was mentioned that if they enroll in a school in a prefecture where the number of high schools and students is small, the difficulty of participating in national competitions will decrease. The largest number of students was the second, followed by the fact that the school environment and facilities were good, and that there were good leaders (supervisors). Was the 3th and 4th most common answer[38].. Also, at the 2007 high school baseball scholarship student knowledgeable conference held, it is not a problem to study abroad in baseball because the difficulty level of participating in national competitions is low and the school environment and facilities are enriched. Has been revealed[38](Because studying abroad in baseball doesn't mean that it's easy to enter a team or participate in a national competition).

Japan Student Baseball CharterBy baseball, which should be prohibited by (which is not prohibited by the Basic Education Law and School Education Law)Scholarship studentThe system has been reported[39].. In the spring of 2007, the Takanoren and Asahi Shimbun started a campaign to denounce and eradicate scholarship students, but they disagreed with the opinions of experts and went to school as a scholarship student who suffers from a reduction in school expenses and dormitory costs for people who have difficulty living. Takanoren also considered the current situation[40]As a result, the Japan Student Baseball Charter was modified in the opposite direction to the intentions of the Takanoren and Asahi Shimbun, and scholarship students were allowed to accept the conditions. However, the target of the above-mentioned scholarship denunciation and eradication campaign is not the entire scholarship student, but some of the students welcome the problem of brokers who recruited students to leading high schools and solicitation from leading schools. Were the parents[41].. In addition, the Takanoren said that sending out transferees and dropouts due to the reform of the scholarship system would be a fall at the end of the reform, and as a result of taking sufficient mitigation measures, there were no transferees or dropouts.[40].

At public schools, we have established physical education departments to recommend sports, and we are strengthening by collecting players in business-related departments such as commercial departments and general departments. In addition, some schools that are generally considered to be advanced schoolsAkita,Shizuoka,Imabari WestThere are some schools that have a "baseball club" in the general recommendation. Some of the strong school directorsFukui merchant-Naofumi Kitano, IkedaFumiya Tsuta(For the ivy, Tokushima Prefecture Board of EducationFull-timePart-timeThere was also a case where he continues to conduct command at the same school for many years despite being a teacher.

Supervision and guidance by experienced professional baseball players

conventionallyFumiya TsutaIt was possible to be registered as a director if one year passed after leaving the professional team like this, but the regulations were revised in 1 (Yanagawa incidentSince then, it has been considerably difficult for experienced professional baseball players to become amateur baseball coaches (in high school baseball, it was possible to return to amateurs as a coach in 1984). However, when a former professional baseball player conducts a high school baseball team, after teaching as a staff member for at least 10 years at the same high school affiliated with Takanoren,Japan Student Baseball AssociationI had to be certified as a high school baseball coach by the sponsor's examination. After that, it was shortened to 1994 years in 5 and 1997 years in 2.[42])afterwardsTeacher licenseA study is conducted between professionals and amateurs so that they can provide guidance even if they have no teaching experience[43][44][45][46], Student Baseball Association from July 2013, 7Japan Baseball OrganizationAfter completing the student baseball qualification recovery workshop conducted by the university and obtaining the certification of the Student Baseball Association, it became possible to teach high school students[47].

School song performance (chorus) of the winning school and raising of school flag

After deciding the match in the game,school songPlaying andschool flagHoisting is taking place.

The person who came up with this idea isOsaka Mainichi NewspaperWas a reporterHitomi KinueIs[48].. The look1928 OfAmsterdam olympicHas won the first silver medal on Japan's women's track at 800 m for women, and was impressed by the national anthem performance and flag raising at the award ceremony at this time, and devised this,1929 Of6th spring meetingWas started from. The school that first performed the school song and raised the school flag wasYaonakaIt was (Osaka). At the national tournament at the Hanshin Koshien Stadium,Hanshin gardeningStaff manually display it on the back of the scoreboard according to the tempo and length of the school song.

The school song performance of the winning school and the raising of the school flag at the summer tournament were 28 years behind the spring tournament,1957Started at the 39th convention of[49].The school that first performed the school song and raised the school flag wasSakaide ShoIt was (Kagawa). At the summer tournament, it will be announced as "school song performance", but at the spring competition it will be announced as "school song singing" (before the two attacks in the first match, it will be announced as "school song performance"). In addition, at the local competition, it is divided into areas with and without school song performance (chorus).[Source required].

If you win a rainy cold, you may omit the school song performance in consideration of the physical condition of the athletes and the cheering party who got wet in the rain.[Note 45]. AlsoRematchIf it is decided, the school songs of both schools will of course not be played.

Such school song performances were started only for the winning schools, but in 199971th selection competitionFrom spring to summer during the first match of each Koshien tournament (2 times before and after the front and back), the school songs of both schools are played in the hall[Note 46].. In some areas such as Chiba Prefecture, following this, the school song of both schools is played twice in all games as well as the first game, and in some areas the school song is played during the seat knock before the game. After the bottom of the seventh inning, the school flag is once delivered, and after the match, the school flag of the winning school is displayed.

In the summer Koshien, the organizer prepares a sound source by a male chorus, but the one used by the school is used at the Senbatsu and local conventions in the summer.

The lyrics are displayed on the scoreboard only for Senbatsu.

JemiLike (Ehime), a school song has been established, but other cheering songs and school songs may be played (Sumi became co-educated from a girls' school and the "school song" was established. ).

In addition, if the school song unique to the high school has not been established at the affiliated / affiliated / affiliated school of the university, the school song of the parent university may be played (Kondaitsuki, Komadaitaka, Komadaiiwamizawa, Komadai Tomakomai, Kokugakuin). Kugayama, Kokugakuin Tochigi, Waseda Saga, Tohoku Gakuin, etc.).Also, in the case of Tenri (Nara), which does not have its own school song, "Tenri Youth Association Song" will be performed.[Note 47](However, since 2009, the song has been officially established as a school song for the school.[51]). If the school song has not been established and is not affiliated with a university, the song “The crown shines on youIs played[52].. Schools whose songs corresponding to such schools and school songs are not called "school songs" (Sumi's "school songs", Tenri's "Youngkai Kai",Keio University"Cram school song" of affiliated school,KokushikanIn "Tachika", etc.), the announcement is unified with "School song".

If the school song is longer than a certain length, the omitted one may be used.Recently, Saibi, Chiba Keizai University, etc. are applicable.Ikeda (Tokushima) uses the one that connects No. 1 and No. 4 (substantially large rust).In addition, Okinawa Fisheries and Kanoya Chuo (Kagoshima) sing school song No. 3 (because Kanoya Chuo has only the school name in No. 3).Tokuei Hanasaki(Saitama)'s school songs are numbered 1 to 4, each of which focuses on spring, summer, autumn, and winter. They sing number 1 in the spring competition, number 2 in the summer competition, and number 3 in the autumn district competition. For a federated team, play only one school song per match[53].

Also, at the Koshien tournament, due to a mistake of the tournament headquarters, a school song different from the original one may play, or the school song may have stopped halfway[54].

Koshien soil

Nowadays, it is a tradition for players to pick up dirt and bring it home after the final game at Koshien, but it is not clear when it took root. There are the following three examples of concrete take-out cases before they are established.

  1. 1937,Of summer23th competitionso,Kumamoto industryLost in the final and finished second. Kumamoto pitcher after the final matchTetsuji Kawakami(Later directed by Yomiuri Giants) put Koshien soil in his uniform pocket and sprinkled it on his school's practice ground. Kawakami himself said that he was an imitation of a player who is doing the same thing outside Koshien.[55].

However, this is not Koshien, which is being requisitioned by the US militaryHankyu Nishinomiya StadiumIt is. This is the oldest takeaway documented in the newspaper[55].
  3. 1949,Of summer31th competitionAnd lost in the quarterfinalsOgurakitaThe aceFukushima KazuoHowever, I unknowingly picked up the soil at the back of the home base and put it in the back pocket of my pants. Fukushima, who noticed an unconscious act with encouragement from the tournament officials, took out the soil from his uniform and put it in a rubber tree flowerpot at the entrance.[21].

Depending on the policy of the school and the leader, I may not take the soil home, so I participated as a director 10 times in the spring and summerDirect NonomuraDid not let the players bring back the soil even if they lost the game[56].. There are also cases in which players who leave the opportunity to participate will not be brought home due to the intention of "coming next".[57].. Especially at spring competitions, they tend not to take it home as much as regular schools.

1958Okinawa at that timeUnder American ruleThere was For the first time during the summer and summerOkinawaからShuriParticipated. Lost to Tsuruga (Fukui) in the first round, and picked up Koshien soil after the match. However, due to quarantine, he could not be brought back to Okinawa and was disposed of after returning home.[58].. Foreign soil and plantsquarantineAlthough it is prohibited by law in any country to bring in without passing through, despite being disposed of for reasons other than Okinawa (including foreign countries and mainland Japan),Naha PortAbandoned on the coast. It should be noted that American staff were not confiscated at Naha Port due to high pressure, and Okinawan officials were sorry for confiscating it because it was a rule. Say. I knew itJapan Airlines OfFlight attendantVolunteers and others picked up the coastal stones around the stadium and donated them to Shuri[59].. The schoolyard is still displayed as a monument to the "Kouen monument" to commemorate Koshien's first appearance.[59].. This is alsoMediaTreated inOkinawa returnIt is said that it became part of accelerating the movement[60].

20206/8,New coronavirus epidemicBy the same yearSummer competitionOf the Hanshin TigersYanoAt the director's suggestion, the baseball team and Hanshin Koshien Stadium will present key chains with Koshien soil to all about 5 third-year baseball team members who join the Japan High School Baseball Federation.[61].

Famous as a ritual of losers, they also bring back the winning school. Schools participating in the final match will take soil with them when they pull up from the ground after all the subsequent programs such as the award ceremony are over.

The soil will not be depleted because it is replenished regularly.

サ イ レ ン

Japanese amateur baseballThen, in the case of a baseball field where the function is installed, in most cases, the motor siren will be blown at the time of play ball and greeting after the game set. At the high school baseball tournament at Koshien Stadium, whether it is spring or summer, the playing time of the stadium is long, a long buzz after the play ball and game set, and a short buzz siren at the start and end of the seat knock (defensive practice) immediately before the match To be done. In high school baseball, at least two games a day except for the final game[Note 48], A siren is needed to communicate to the players waiting for the match and the staff in charge.There is no siren sounding when the rain cold game is established.

The details of the introduction of motor sirens in amateur baseball are not known in detail[62].. However, 193723nd Championship TheRozobashi incidentSince it opened immediately after the beginning of the game, the siren was not used to start and end the game, and the trumpet for the army was substituted.

In addition, August 8 during the national high school baseball tournament in summer (The end of the war) At noon, a siren will be sounded for one minute to pray (from the 1th Congress in 1963). It was also held in the 45 exchange game.However, this is not the case if noon is not in the match, and it is sounded just before the start of the match in consideration of the safety of the spectators. It was sounded at 2020:2010 (before the start of the second game on the day of the three games in each year).If the match on the day is canceled, no silent prayer will be held.

At the 100th anniversary tournament, the opening ball ceremony was held before the first game during the tournament, which was called the legendary starting ball ceremony, so the siren of the play ball was not blown at the beginning of the first game.

Use of the Hanshin Koshien Stadium at local competitions

Hyogo Prefecture TournamentThere was once used the Hanshin Koshien stadium in the Kinki tournament, and there are schools and athletes who have played at the stadium as a local tournament even if they have no history of participating in the national tournament.

The year after the Hanshin Koshien Stadium was completed1925(11 times) Has been used for local competitions since this year1928(14 timesAll the games of the Hyogo Prefecture tournament were held at Hanshin Koshien Stadium until[63].. Ball players in Hyogo Prefecture were playing at the Hanshin Koshien Stadium, which had just been completed just before this tournament. After that, due to the situation of the stadium and the location conditions in Hyogo prefecture, the Hanshin Koshien stadium was often used as the qualifying venue for the prefectural convention (however, the outfield seats were not open).[63].. Even Koyaren in Hyogo Prefecture does not recognize that Koshien is a "sacred place," and "if anything, Hyogo PrefectureAkashiWas special, and Koshien was recognized as "one of the stadiums in other prefectures".[63].

However, in July when the local convention was originally heldProfessional baseball-Hanshin TigersWent on an expedition during the national convention (so-calledLong term load) It was difficult to secure a schedule for the venue of the local tournament due to the intensive hosting of the competition, and there was a problem with the stadium fee.[63], And later (Awaji IslandSince there were many baseball fields in various areas in Hyogo prefecture, the frequency was gradually decreasing as the necessity to use the Hanshin Koshien stadium at the prefectural tournament diminished.

Originally, there was a voice saying, "Why do you have a local tournament at Koshien?"2004On the day when the Hanshin Koshien Stadium was used at the prefectural convention[64]The school that played the game was featured in the national broadcast program of the day, and the Hanshin Koshien Stadium was reflected in the game scene.[63].. The day after the broadcast, a protest phone call was sent to Takanoren in Hyogo Prefecture.[Note 49]Was not used as a qualifying venue for the last time in 2004 due to the flooding of[63].

Koshien practice

Prior to the start of the tournament for both selection and championships, all representative teams that have decided to participate will have a pre-training (commonly known as Koshien practice) at the Hanshin Koshien Stadium. The purpose is to let you know the atmosphere of the grounds of the Hanshin Koshien Stadium before the opening of the tournament.From about a week before the opening of the tournament, it is appointed from teams mainly in Kinki region such as Hyogo prefecture and Osaka prefecture, which are easy to move, one after another.

Prohibited matter

In high school baseball, there are cases where the Takanoren and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology issued a notice and were banned or restrained. The content of this section was clarified at the high school baseball scholarship student expert conference held in 2007.

Hosting a baseball tournament
In the latter half of the 20, high schools in Yamanashi gathered junior high schools in the prefecture to host a baseball tournament and scout for influential players. After that, the Ministry of Education issued a notice nationwide at the secretary-general level and banned that higher (high school) schools host tournaments for lower (elementary and junior high school) schools.[88].
Saeki notification
In 1955, during the All Japan Hawaii Expedition, it was discovered that professional baseball officials were passing cash to all the Japanese players in the name of "Goodbye" mixed with the players' see-off.[88].. Vice Chairman of the then Takano RenTatsuo SaekiWas angry at this act and issued a "notification" (notification of Saeki) on the grounds that high school baseball players should not be deceived by the bill-bundle offensive of professional baseball. Saeki had a strong attitude to impose penalties on the high school side, and impose penalties on the school that violated it.
Prohibition of trademark restrictions on baseball equipment and free provision of products
In the 40s, when high school baseball started to be widely reported by the mass media, sports makers and shops began offering free baseball equipment to Koshien participating schools in the name of Koshien participating celebrations, aiming for advertising effects. . The Takanoren immediately banned this, but this time, the dormitories of the participating schools were offered free of charge, mainly for the promotion of products. The Takanoren once again announced that it would prohibit trademark control and free provision, and urged all concerned to refrain from self-control and prevent high school baseball from being affected by commercialism.[37].
Prohibition of the winning parade and the winning sale
1980 ChampionshipYokohama High SchoolWins as a countermeasure for crowded traffic due to waiting for the arrival of Yokohama High School Nine when 2 people were crowded at Shin-Yokohama StationparadeBans and "winners" by the mallSale”, etc.[37].2015 Of87th Selected High School Baseball TournamentWonTsurugaOn the other hand, Japan Takano Ren said in the "School of Participation Guide" that "a gorgeous parade treats high school students as heroes and imbues wrong feelings" and "fan enthusiasm induces uncontrolled accidents and unexpected accidents". Also, in the "Japan Student Baseball Charter", "I forbid to use student baseball commercially", so I asked myself to refrain from doing so.[89].
Prohibition of abuse and abuse to partner high schools and related organizations
Previously, when cheering, cheering such as "◇◇ defeat" and "kill me ◇◇" and using banners such as "overthrow ◇◇ high school" were used, but in recent years, Japan Takanoren has "◇◇ defeat". Don't use support such as "Kill it ◇◇" or use banners such as "Overthrow ◇◇ High School". It was made clear that the support was to encourage and praise the team and players of the school, and the other school was notified that it was limited to celebrating good performance.[90]..However, the time, circumstances, and reasons for the Takano Ren's notification have not been clarified at all.However, parents, teachers, spectators, etc. have been swearing and taunting, and after being defeated in the selection tournament (against Yo High School) in which Kaisei High School participated, "It was a shame until the last generation that I lost the 21st century frame. In response to the statement, the director of the school, Nonomura, took responsibility and resigned from the director.[91]There is a case.
Director Protest
Some exceptions in high school baseball[Note 50]Protest is prohibited except for[92].. Also, protests can be made only by the captain, messenger or the athlete concerned, and it is prohibited for the manager to protest. However, it is necessary to keep in mind that the prohibition of protests by the director is a rule specific to high school baseball (Takanoren) because the rules are only allowed for protests at international competitions in which high school children play.

Problem presentation

High school baseball is not only a mere counter-attack against high school club activities, but is also popular enough to attract social attention, but problems are raised from various angles to school officials, parents, sponsored Takano Ren and the media. ing.

Media handling issues
High school baseball, which is only one of the club activities of the school, is treated more prominently than the club activities of other sports in the media such as newspapers and television (or other high school sports are covered by high school baseball. There is an opinion that regards it as a problem. In fact, the mass media is different from those who handle baseball, soccer, rugby, volleyball and other sports that host national competitions in high school club activities. For sports writers,NHKAt the 2010 summer tournament, it broadcasted all games for about 130 hours (NHK TVAt 9 amNHK Radio First BroadcastThere is a maximum of 8 hours a day from 10am, and all the regular programs are suspended), while the same high school general competitionNational high school general physical education meetHe pointed out that the broadcast time of (Inter High) was only a 10-hour digest on NHK E-tele, and NHK said that it may be possible to increase the broadcasting of other sports a little more.[93].. In addition, on the Internet, "High school baseball is not the only representative of the region, popularity is sponsoredAsahi ShimbunIt is also pointed out that "The creation by NHK that broadcasts for a long time" "Media and Takano Ren create and worship drama by players"[94].. In response to these online criticisms, Sankei Shimbun reporters argue that there are many high school baseball articles because there are many needs of readers who want to read if the writing side says.[95].
Problems of burden on players
Tournament-based championships and selectionsSummer Vacationspring vacationIt is held in Japan and aims to complete the entire tournament schedule during the holidays.Therefore, schools that advance to the top will concentrate on playing games in a short period of time, and the resulting increase in the burden on athletes is often regarded as a problem.Especially for pitchers, there are many cases where one main pitcher has to be relied on due to the problem of the player group that "there is no room to train multiple pitchers with the same ability as ace".[Note 51], At schools that won in local and national competitions, etc.Sports disorderOr causeBurnout syndromeMay become. Burnout is not limited to recent years,Sadaharu Oh"I think that if I had played in 5 consecutive seasons, I was going to college with a bad baseball. I couldn't play at the end, so I felt dangling," he said later.[96].
Spring selection tends to be relatively easy in terms of the number of games and the environment because the participating schools are decided based on the results of the autumn competition, but in the summer championships, the local competitions, main competitions, and many competitions are subject to high temperatures and high temperatures. The athlete is placed in a harsh environment as it must be done in strong sunlight. In 2011heatstrokeThen, they fell one after another and it became impossible to continue the game, and there were cases where the game was confiscated. Also in 2013Saitama tournamentAt 38Every timeThe game was held in the heat of over XNUMX, and not only the athletes but also the general pupils of the audience were transported to the hospital due to the symptoms of heat stroke.[97].. In factJapan Athletic AssociationAccording to the exercise guidelines for prevention of heat stroke recommended by, in principle, exercise at temperatures of 35°C or higher is prohibited except for special cases (it should be stopped if the target is a child).[98][99], Some say "let's stop summer sports"[94].. In response to such criticism, sports journalistsMasayuki Tamaki"It may be the flip side of popularity, but it may be because the true intention to high school baseball that the media has sealed for many years can be said on the net," further said, "The competition was developed by the media hosting the competition. On the other hand, as high school baseball is inseparable from business, it is not possible to point out problems such as the timing of the event, and sound journalism is no longer functioning. (Koyaren is reluctant to be an amateur player). He also pointed out.With Darvish"I think it should be reviewed, but the wall is more than 50 years history"[94].
As a countermeasure,2004From now on, the quarterfinals of the national tournament will be held in two games every two days in both spring and summer.[Note 52]In the summer2013From spring2015から[Note 53]Returned the quarterfinals to one-day four-game batch, and revised the schedule so that the day after the quarterfinals will be a rest day (in the summer tournament local qualifying, the day after the quarterfinals or high school The closing ceremony for the first semester of7/20Many have been established before and after the weekdays before and after). Also,2018 OfKyoto tournamentHowever, due to the heat wave, we took two quarter-finals from the first four consecutive games in the morning and set a break during the day to hold the third and subsequent games from 4:2.[100].. As a measure against heat and heat stroke in local competitions, the Koyaren will provide 15 yen from the national championship revenue as a subsidy to each prefecture's Takanoren that hosts the local competition.[101].. Used for leasing mist sprayers and cool air blowers for spectators, purchasing oral rehydration solutions, and increasing the number of physiotherapists and nurses[102].
Despite the frequent discussions like this,2018 championshipAtGold foot farming(Akita) ace pitcherTeruyoshi YoshidaPitched in all 11 games, including the regional and main competitions, and throwed 11 pitches in all games by one player without ever changing until they discontinued in the finals of the 1th main competition. Up to[103], Criticism of this[104],Gold farming whirlwindIt was pointed out that the series of press stances and the excitement in various places praising the good performance of gold foot agriculture are what make these "beautiful talks".[105][106].. After the competition in December of the same yearNiigataTakano Ren20194Decided to introduce a limit on the number of balls at the maximum 1 balls per game at the spring Niigata tournament[107].. In response to this, the board of directors of the Japan Takanoren was convened in February 2019, and then the "People's Disability Prevention Conference" centered around the Japan Takanoren was established.[108][109][Note 54].
Criticism tends to be concentrated on baseball for the tournament management that is concentrated during the summer day.[94],National high school general physical education meetEven in (Inter High), there is no big difference in the situation, and excessive criticism becomes a problem related to the above-mentioned "problem on media handling".[110].

Problems of high school baseball children themselves and their parents
While a number of problems have been pointed out, some criticize the high school baseball children themselves and their guardians. Yokohama High School DirectorMototomo WatanabeEmphasized "high school baseball as an education" and "people who raise people" in "What is high school baseball?"On top of that, recent students are "I can't greet (compared to old students)" "I make excuses without apologizing (even if I do bad things)" "I don't know how to speak" "Lack of common sense There is. "Regarding parents, "(From the directors of other schools) I'm so passionate about high school baseball that I'm going to talk to the directors over there for the education of the important students, deliver them, and talk about the personnel of the directors and players. I heard that there is even a parents' association. " He criticized, "If you want to enroll students in a strong school or aim to become a professional, first of all, education (human development) of students is more necessary than baseball skills."[115].
In recent years, high school baseball children have been criminalized and arrested, and the number of cases where schools and Takanoren have been apologized and explained is increasing rapidly.[116][117][118].. Especially2012 summer championshipIn response to the arrest of a high school baseball player at a Koshien participating school after a criminal case during the tournament[119][120]Takanoren had an emergency meeting. There is no case that the high school that caused these criminal cases declined to participate, and the person who caused the problem was removed and participated in the competition. Also, at the 2012 district conference, a high school baseball team member who lost goodbye refused to line up because he was dissatisfied with the decision,channel 2Or a comment that criticizes the referee,TwitterThere was an example of the school side deciding to refrain from the activities of the baseball club due to threats, rape notices, and murder notices to those involved in the school and girls students.[121][122][123].
Toei,巨人After playing as a pitcher, he was a coach in many professional teams after retiring, and also directed at his alma mater, Chuo University.Yoshimasa Takahashi"The baseball club is not a professional training institute. Those who violate the rules of discipline and society will not be allowed to continue their activities for the next year, and the club will be suspended for a certain period of time. The scandal of the department is happening as much as possible"[124].
The problem of high school baseball as a club activity
High school baseball is based on "victimism" like other sportscorporal punishment"Excessive instruction" such asGutsRooted in, "absolute obedience to leaders and seniors, superiority", "solidarity responsibility" disposition[Note 55]Exists.
As an example of ShigokiHiroki KurodaDuring the Uenomiya High School, at the summer prefectural tournament, the director gave him 6 hours from 9 am to 15 pm in response to his mistake, and he couldn't even give water to the fence between poles. In July 2012, the content that was ordered to "run"New York TimesPublished in Confession[125][Note 56].. There are cases in which such a harbor escalates, declines participation in local/national competitions, and even kills junior members due to assault by seniors.[Note 57].. In the 1960s and 70s, the solidarity responsibility was in some cases refused to participate in Koshien as a solidarity responsibility due to a problem caused by a student who was completely unrelated to the baseball club (Tatsuo SaekiSee also section). Since the 1980s, the target range has been narrowed from students in school to those involved in the baseball club, and in recent years the target range has been reduced by only removing those who have caused problems.
Points out that the overall trend of high school baseball is overtraining.2019 New CoronavirusIt is introduced that there is a voice that "the player's physique, batting distance, and pitching speed have improved" because the amount of practice has decreased due to the influence of the spread of infection.[126]..Not limited to high school students, Japanese amateur baseball tends to be overtrained, and there are many cases in which the epiphyseal line closes early due to excessive practice from the junior high school stage, and the height does not grow as expected.That pointDominicaThe leader of the amateur ball worldMLBThe ultimate goal is to send out students to baseball, and it is common for boys to play baseball freely and enjoyably.Also, in the United States, if a player breaks down in practice, there is a risk that parents will be accused of compensating for lost profits that should have been obtained in the professional ball world in the future, so it is common to not force players in the growing season. Is[127].
Masahiro Tanaka New York YankeesWhen I moved to a local newspaperNew York TimesMade a big feature on the front page, but in the article, he introduced Tanaka's high school baseball life and conveyed the actual situation of Japanese baseball teams who demand absolute dedication to the team and strict adherence to discipline.[128].. I covered this article in my columninternationaljournalist OfReiko RobertsonFirst of all, it seems impossible to force the youth of the United States to perform ascetic monks in the baseball club of a Japanese high school.Child abusePointed out that there may be a voice[129].
Opinions about professional punishment are divided even among professional baseball players.Daisuke MatsuzakaIn the Little League era, "I couldn't get angry even if I made a mistake in baseball, but if I did something bad, it was common for me to hit my butt with a butt," he recalled.[130].Hideki MatsuiEven when he was in junior high school, he said that he received physical punishment from the director after the match when he took an attitude of being repeatedly away from the ball, but on the other hand, without director's physical punishment, he was not present[131].. vice versaMasumi KuwataPointed out that "it does not require corporal punishment. It can hinder the independence of children and pick up the growth buds," based on their own experience of being beaten.[132].
It became a social problem in January 2013Sakuramiya High SchoolFollowing the corporal punishment issue of the basketball club, the following February, Takanoren issued a notice to all member schools calling for thorough eradication of corporal punishment. Also at the opening ceremony of the selection competitionHirofumi ShimomuraThe Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology made an effort to eradicate corporal punishment by appealing again to eradicate corporal punishment. However, in June of the same year, as a result of a questionnaire survey conducted by Takanoren to baseball club leaders, 6% of all respondents answered that "(physical punishment) is necessary for guidance" in the item of physical punishment from leaders to staff. Announced. In response to the results of the questionnaire, Kodo Nishioka, Chairman of the Deliberation Committee, said, "It's a shock that there are still so many people who have the wrong idea. I have to keep saying until I have no corporal punishment." To that effect[133].
Blacksmith(At the time of the interview, the Gifu Shogi High-Tech Baseball Club Director of Gifu Prefecture) said, “A leader with few drawers wants to model the students. There are many teachers who are appointed as advisors for club activities. The fixed idea of ​​the surroundings is persistent if it is limited to the hair of a high school ball child. When the Kyushu team stood in Koshien, the manager freed the player's hair, and OBs and fans complained that it wasn't like a baby boy. Forced curl is defined as explicit corporal punishment (violence)[134].
Protest by a person without protest rights
In high school baseball, protest rights are recognized by players and coaches, and coaches have no protest rights. However, there are the following cases as protests by those who do not have the right to protest.
  1. GuanglingversusSagakita(2007 Championship Final)-Saga Kita reverses due to a subtle judgment. Guangling’s directorprotestAnd received attention from Takanoren[Note 58][Note 59]
  2. Akashi-sho vs. Kakogawakita (2009 Autumn Hyogo Tournament)-As a result of protests by the directors of both schools over the decision of good-bye hit, the referee's decision changed over and over.[135].. Prefectural Takanoren cautioned the manager and manager of Akashi Shota who protested out of the bench on September 9, and paid close attention to the director and manager of Kako Kawakita who did not instruct the players to line up after the match. Also, the Prefectural Takano Federation Referee Department apologized to the Prefectural Takanoren for the determination that it changed over and over, and "it will try to prevent recurrence"[136].
  3. Yokohama vs. Kanto (2012 selection tournament quarter-finals)-5th back-one-death-one, Yokohama dares to do safety squeeze in third base. Although it seemed to be a tie, Kanto Hajime said that "XNUMXrd runners are not stepping on the main base".appeal.. The tie squeeze became a phantom as the ball court acknowledged the appeal. After the sentence, the ball referee grabbed the microphone and said, "I appealed that the third runner did not step on the main base, so I left it out." I'm stepping on." However, he was verbally warned by the general affairs committee member of the Games headquarters that he was told that the director has no protest right. After the match, the third runner in Yokohama told reporters, "If you don't step on it, you can feel it from the back of the spike. I thought I stepped on it."Texas Rangers OfWith Darvish ThetwitterSo, "Watch out for Yokohama High School Director Watanabe. I always think, but why are protests failing? I remember that there were many mysterious rules from the time I played high school baseball." Criticized the system[137].
  4. Kagoshima Yuryu vs. Shonan (2000 Kagoshima Tournament)-Shonan's director to judge the referee over the ballTomohiro AkiyamaProtested over 30 minutes through the captain, the referee explained to the audience with a microphone. After the match, Kashiyama knew that the decision would not be overturned, but explained that he protested as a strategy to cut off the inspiration of the own player and the good flow of the opponent high school.[112].. At that time, Mount Mt.DirectorBut took responsibility and offered to resign after the match[113].. Prefectural Takanoren approved the resignation of Mt. Kaname at the board meeting on July 7, and at the same time requested the submission of a cleaning letter.[138].
  5. Gifu City North Gifu Commerce vs Gifu Commerce (2006 Summer Gifu Games)-When the prefecture Gifu Commerce hit the goodbye home run, the cheerful substitute players and runners intersect. Gifu Johoku coach violates the baseball rules of Gifu Shoken[Note 60]The player refused to line up for about 30 minutes after the match. After the match, Takano Ren gave the prefecture Gifu merchant a severe cautionary action against the fact that a player jumped out of the bench before the end of the game, while Gifu Johoku was due to the delay in alignment.[139]
"High school baseball betting"
High school baseball is mainly targeted for "Prediction of win/loss of target game" "Prediction of winning school"gamblingThe problem being addressed. Long time agoGangster BodyThere were also cases where millions to tens of millions of yen moved in one game.[140][141]In recent years, high school baseball gambling has been arrested not only by gangsters but also by the general public, relatives, and office workers.[142][143][144][145]2015Problems with professional baseball players involved in baseball gamblingIt was also revealed that he was betting cash on high school baseball[146]
Takanoren's "interference"
The problem that the sponsored Takano Ren interferes excessively with the school and its surroundings. For departments,uniformAnyway manager's clothes[147]Not only the designated teachers and managers who attend the lottery, but also the clothes of the athletes designated[148], There was a case where the school side removed the embroidery as a result of asking for explanation that embroidery on the uniform of the participating school was not preferable in the past.[149].. Outside of that timeGovernor of Nagano Prefecture(Yasuo Tanaka), an example of interference with the support, on the day of the opening ceremony,Atomic bomb dropped on HiroshimaThere is also an example in which the player who planned to offer silence in the indoor practice field before the opening ceremony was stopped with the other participating schools according to the time of day, and the silence was made only at the own school.[150].
As an example of interference with the pressYomiuri ShimbunFrom August 2007st, 8 to August 1rd, 2007, featured "What is Takanoren?"[151]Posted. The Takanoren asked the Yomiuri Shimbun for a correction and an apology for the article, but the Yomiuri Shimbun did not respond.
Support/Audience moral issues
In high school baseball, it is customary for each school's brass band to support at the Alps stand,2011 championshipIn the magazine “Weekly Asahi Special Edition Koshien 2011” released before the tournament, as part of the operation, “The bell of the wind instrument (the part where the sound is emitted) was aimed at the batter box to push Nine's back during the attack of Narashino, and the other school When we spend time gathering at the mound, we turn to the mound, so that we can't hear the instructions from the opponent's bench or make it difficult to talk on the mound.''Narashino High SchoolAn interview article of Haruki Ishizuya, an adviser of the brass band in Chiba, was published.[152]..

We reported on the impression of Shizuoka Takashi[153]. AlsoTBS TVAnnouncerShinichiro AzumiWas broadcast right after the matchShinichiro Azumi's Sunday Heaven(TBS Radio) Did not reveal the source[154]Although mentioned in this remark[155].. In response to Azumi's remark on the programDaily GendaiAs a result of Narashino's interview with the school, although the Narashino professor denied the intention against the fair play spirit[156], After the second round, we took measures such as stopping the performance during the opponent's time. In the following 2, Yuji Yanagawa, who wrote the above interview, also stated that “Takano Ren was concerned about the adviser's remarks and called the school officials and the baseball team Toru Kobayashi during the tournament with great caution.”[157].
Narashino2019 selectionHowever, in the second round of the Battle of Hoshiryo, I received complaints from neighboring residents about the sound of the drums, so I refrained from using the largest drums and took measures to replace the other drums with smaller ones. The Takanoren side said that this response was a "temporary measure," and that the next time, it would be fine as before.[158]Actually, the number of drums was reduced after the next race[159].. Narashino has won the cheering party excellence award at the same tournament (the award covers the first round of support).

Organized by the tournament, which saw this situation seriouslyOsaka Asahi ShimbunOwns Naruo StadiumHanshin Electric RailwayProposed a full-scale baseball stadium construction.At that time, the electric railway sideAbandoned riverAndSarukawa-EdagawaThe interests of both sides were in agreement, partly because they were planning to build a new stadium as part of the development of the landfill site.When designing the new stadium, there was no reference at the baseball stadiums in Japan at that time, so at that timeNew York GiantsWas the home ofPolo GroundsIt is said that it was designed as a model.The tentative name until completion was "Edagawa Sports Ground", but it was scheduled to be completed in 13.The twelve zodiacAuspicious with the first combination ofKoshiSince it was the year (Yesterday), later "Koshien University Playground(The signboard is Hanshin Koshien Stadium) ".The groundbreaking ceremony was held on March 1924, 3, and the completion ceremony was held on August 11, 8.

The stadium was also improved, and the outfield, which had remained soil since its opening, was covered with grass, and the Alps stand was expanded in 1929 and the outfield stand was expanded one after another in 1936, with a nominal capacity of 7.When the stand was expanded, the shape of the fairground was changed to a shape close to the present, and it was almost exclusively for baseball, but it was still vast as a Japanese baseball field at that time, and the characteristic of Japanese players was "small and powerless". It was known that it was extremely difficult to hit a home run due to the low quality of the ball and the ball.[Note 9]..In addition, at this time, from Koshien Stadium, "Koshien StadiumIt is highly possible that the name was changed to ", but the details are unknown.In 1935, the owner Hanshin Electric Railway established the Osaka Baseball Club (baseball team name Osaka Tigers, now Hanshin Tigers), and made Koshien Stadium an activity base.However,FranchiseBefore the system was introduced, concepts such as "home / visitor games" and "home" were sparse.Hankyu Nishinomiya Stadium,Korakuen StadiumIt was used by each team.

after that,Pacific WarWith the intensification ofDainippon Student Physical Education Promotion Tournament (commonly known as Phantom Koshien)Finally, secondary school baseball was released in January 1945.New Year conventionAt the end of the (unofficial tournament), professional baseball was suspended and the use of the stadium during the war was finished.The stadium and surrounding facilities are requisitioned by the military, the infield is Imohata, the outfield is a military truck parking lot, the stand is a factory from the back net to the third base infield seat, and the first base side isNormal Marine Training CenterFor the third base side Alps, for the first base side AlpsKawanishi AircraftWarehouse, Army Convoy, Left StandKoa bearing工場[18]The light standHanshin Youth SchoolWas to be used as[19]..

After the war

After the end of the war together with Naruo AirfieldU.S. ArmyIn 1946, each official game could not be held, the championship tournament was held instead at Hankyu Nishinomiya Stadium, and the selection tournament and professional baseball were canceled.The following year, in 1947, part of the stand and the ground were requisitioned, so spring and summer secondary school baseball and professional baseball resumed.Koshien bowlThe first tournament is held.Since the land of the surrounding facilities was converted to housing, the leisure facilities related to Hanshin Electric Railway were reduced to only the pool (currently a tennis court and clubhouse) and the relocated Hanshin Park.The cancellation of the requisition of all the stadiums had to wait until 1.

In the middle of the 1947 season, to increase home runsLucky zoneWas established for the first time in Japan (initially only for professional use). In 1948 in professional baseballFranchise systemWas provisionally introduced, and the Osaka Tigers made the Koshien Stadium a dedicated stadium and did not have its own large-scale stadium.Nankai HawksWith this, most of the sponsored games came to be played at Koshien Stadium. Nankai Electric RailwayNakamozu StadiumHowever, due to the poor location of Nakamozu, official games were held at this stadium and Hankyu Nishinomiya stadium from the postwar period until this year.However, the use of the Nankai Hawks was tentative and has been a nominal franchise since 1950.Osaka cityWas newly established inOsaka StadiumMoved to.

Hankyu Nishinomiya Stadium has becomeHankyu BravesBecause it became the home of the Pacific League, the Pacific League games were held exclusively at Nishinomiya Stadium, and the stadium continued to be the only official game of the Central League centered on the Hanshin Tigers (on the contrary, this stadium is for high school baseball, etc.) The Tigers didn't play official games at Nishinomiya Stadium until 1990, even when they couldn't be used at. The Pacific League-sponsored match held at the stadium after the two-league split was held in 2.Tohoku Rakuten Golden EaglesversusOrix BuffaloesFirst battle (detailsLater).

From major renovation to ball park area concept

After that, new night game facilities, seats, and scoreboards were renovated.Especially since 1976, seats have been renewed over several years.In 1991, the lucky zone was removed due to a review of the size of the ground.In this way, improvements were made many times to meet the standards of the time, but compared to the latest stadiums, the facilities are inevitably aging and obsolete, and considering the useful life of the building, it will eventually be rebuilt or completely rebuilt. It was clear that a typical renovation had to be done.so thatthe 1990sAt the beginning, the head of Hanshin Electric RailwayDome StadiumWith this in mind, I visited the major dome stadiums in the United States.The plan is to close Hanshin Park, which was initially in the red, and build a dome stadium on the site including the site and surrounding land (because the land of Hanshin Park was not enough and it was necessary to acquire the surrounding land). In fact, in 1993, it was reported that "we are considering starting construction of the dome stadium about 10 years after the Nishi-Umeda redevelopment project (which will start in the fall of the same year) will end."[20].

XNUM X Year X NUM X Month X NUM X DayGreat Hanshin-Awaji EarthquakeOccurs.As a result, cracks and collapses occurred in a part of the stand, and the foundation part was inspected, but there was no problem.Selection tournament of the same yearBefore the opening, only the cracks and collapsed parts were repaired.It was considered to cancel the tournament in consideration of the feelings of the residents, but it was held as planned.However, the damage caused by this earthquakeBubble burstDue to the influence of the aftermath of the event, Hanshin Electric Railway decided to review the dome construction project plan, and the dome construction plan at the site of Hanshin Park was withdrawn without being officially announced (in 2004).LaLaportAttract).After that, based on the inspection results of the structural strength of the stadium body, the construction period was divided into three off-season periods, and a large-scale renovation was carried out leaving only the foundation part. In July 3, "Nishi-Osaka LineThe outline of the concept was reported, "We will start construction by the off-season of 2008 when the extension business is settled, and aim for completion after 2010." However, the official announcement was made in November 2005, and the construction started in the fall of 11. The entire construction was completed in the spring of 2007 (detailsLater).

After that, the surrounding environment was improved intermittently,Koshien StationAround 2017 when the renewal of the stadium was completed --- Significantly improved the approach from the station square to the stadium by 2020[21]..The remnants of the abandoned river, such as the banks of the old Shin River and the rows of pine trees, were almost completely removed, and commercial facilities such as goods shops, a circular plaza, and a bus terminal were constructed.[22]..In addition, in 2021Koshien musclePart of the fence around the left side stadium facing the stadium was removed, and in 2022, the annex and commercial facility on the south side of the stadiumKoshien Plus", Etc.,"Ball park areaUnder the "concept", the stadium site and the surrounding environment are being integrated.[23][24].

Stadium equipment

It is called "Gin-san" that covers the back of the back net.Large roof, Featuring a clock tower type scoreboard. Once the outer wall of the stadiumivyIt was covered with (vines), but it was replanted after being removed once with the renewal work (Later).


Despite the one-layer type, it has a capacity of more than 43,000, which is a very large scale.The size of the infield stand is not so large, but the outfield stand is about twice the size of other stadiums and occupies about 4% of the total capacity (general professional baseball teams are based in 2-3% of the stadiums. ).Sometimes when a new foreign player from the Hanshin Tigers visits the stadium before the opening, he steps into the field and is surprised that it is a "very big stadium" in Kansai.sports newspaperis sometimes reported in

The interior of the seats, etc., is unified in green (after the renovation in 2009. However, there is a difference in shade depending on the seat), but the stands are divided into the infield, the Alps, and the outfield, and have been renewed. The structure has been inherited since then.Of these, the 2nd and 3rd floors of the infield stand and the Alps stand are connected by an aisle in the stands. You can freely move to the stand (for that reason, when heading from the aisle to the seat, the staff at each gate checks the ticket each time).Between each stand there is a passage that leads from the ground to the outside of the stadium, and it is used for the entry and exit of relief cars and the exit route for spectators.

Alps stand was originally a common name, but now it is used as an official name.This popular name comes from a popular caricature artist of the time, who depicted the spectators in white shirts in the stadium filled to the brim during the junior high school baseball game, which was held in the summer just after the stands had been expanded.Ippei OkamotoIs "Sono Stand Hamata Nice Ni Takakumi El,Alps standIt is derived from the caricature with the sentence "Da, Uenokata Niha Mannen Yuki Gaari Sauda".[28][Note 10][Note 11]..This Alps stand is separated from the infield stand, and the seats are in the form of chaise lounges without a backrest, which is the only Koshien stadium in the home ground of professional baseball teams.The outfield stand was named "Himalayan stand" on the Asahi Shimbun after the expansion, but it was not widely used.

At the time of opening, only the part of the ground facing the infield was made of reinforced concrete (50 steps, height 14.3 m), and at the current position of the Alps stand and outfield stand, there was a 20-step wooden stand on the earthen mound. ..After that, the Alps stand was rebuilt in 1929, and the outfield stand was rebuilt in 1936 to the same level as the infield stand.At the same time, the infield stand and the Alps stand were expanded to the ground side as a whole in order to comply with the foul ground rule revision, so the front row of the infield stand and the Alps stand was at the ground level, and it is already at the ground level before the war. ofField sheetIt was in the form of.The announcement room behind the home plate, which is usually on the ground level, is semi-underground.[Note 12].

After the renovation from 2007, facilities for players and other related parties are concentrated on the first floor of the infield stand and the Alps stand and the clubhouse.Previously, in addition to the 1st floor of the Alps stand, the 1nd floor of the infield stand and the 2st and 1nd floors of the outfield stand were used as related areas, but they have been moved to various places to increase the facilities for the audience of the stands.Hidefumi MiyakeAccording to the report, around the 1950s when Miyake joined the Hanshin Tigers, there was a training camp for second basemen under the infield stand on the first base side.[29].Shinya SasakiMyselfShonan High SchoolI participated in the eraThe 31rd National High School Baseball ChampionshipSo, I said that I had to change the dormitory to a camp for junior players under the stadium stand because the dormitory at the beginning was too terrible.[30]..In addition, after the athlete's accommodation facility was later built in Koshien XNUMXbancho opposite the stadium and used for a long time, a dedicated training camp "Torafuso" was built.[Note 13],Hanshin Naruohama StadiumUpon completion, it has moved to the same site.

Broadcast and press seats are behind the backnet. Before the renewal, there was a spectator seat behind the press seat in the middle tier, but after the renewal, it is on the top tier. The entrance to the press and radio booths (upper) is isolated because there is a partition in another place, but the TV broadcasting seats (middle) will be temporarily installed in a place without partitions. When high school baseball is played,NHK Osaka Broadcasting Station,MBS TV(Selection),Asahi Broadcasting TVSeveral official event posters (ABC, tournament)sloganA set of pasted panels is temporarily installed.Unusually for a professional baseball home stadium, both the broadcasting seats and the reporters' seats are open type, so there is no air conditioning.

If the home run ball lands directly in the beer garden "Coconut Garden" in front of the back screen only on the day of the official professional baseball game, you can bring your receipt and get a full refund of the food and drink charges from the start of business on the day of the game to the time of landing. The service is being implemented (the batter is not limited to the Hanshin Tigers, but also the players of the visitor team. However, the food and drink charges after landing are not applicable)[31]..However, since it takes a flight distance of about 150 m to fly so far, it has not landed and has not been implemented so far, but this service is still being implemented as of 2020.[32].

Introduced in 2018,Convenience storeAdvance sales on terminals installed in ), and the Ivy seat, Breeze seat and SMBC seat were designated as "1st base special unreserved seat" or "3rd base special unreserved seat".The outfield seats were once open to the public for free (therefore, admission was restricted when full), but from the 2018 tournament at the championship, and from the 2021 tournament at the selection tournament, each was charged.
At the Alps Stand, the name of "Alps Seat" remains the same, but it is sold only to those involved in the participating schools, not to general customers.In principle, the other stands will not be replaced, but only the Alps Stand will be replaced.When high school baseball is held, some seats are removed at the front so that the cheerleaders and brass bands of the participating schools can easily occupy the seats, and the seat arrangement and number of seats are different between when professional baseball is held and when high school baseball is held. different.Due to the change to high school baseball specifications, the official professional baseball games were suspended a few days before the opening of the high school baseball season. war resumes[Note 15].
In addition, for events other than baseball, the seat classification for the stand may be the same as for professional baseball.

Silver umbrella

When the silver umbrella was first opened, it was called "Tetsusan" and covers the entire infield seats (excluding the rear Alps part). Due to its material, it was called "Daitetsusan". In 1930, it was extended to the Alps stand, aiming for the popularity of female customers. But,Second World WarIn 1943, it was removed for the purpose of delivering iron materials, and the blue ceiling continued for seven years until 1950. Then in 7duraluminIt was revived as a silver umbrella made of silverKawasaki Heavy IndustriesFrom the middle of the first and third base infield seats, smaller than the initial opening only in the back seats of the net, installed in 1982aluminumIt was changed to an alloy (the pillars remained the same).

2009th generation in 4GalvalumeIt was replaced by a steel plate. The product name isYodogawa SteelYodroof 180 Goby. It is the same size as when it opened, and covers the entire infield seats except the Alps. Under the silver umbrella, there is a royal suite that is a separate spectator, and at the bottom of the wallRibbon LED board"Koshien Liner Vision" is installed. Also, from the second generation silver umbrella, there is a sub-score board for outfield seats in the center.

On the roof in 2010Solar cellThe panel was installed and started operation from March 3st of the same year. The panel isHonda Motor Co., Ltd.Honda Soltec's subsidiary, Estimated power generation is 193,000 kW / h per year, which means 133 tons per year.carbon dioxideEmission can be suppressed[39].

The pillars to support the silver umbrella are set up in the audience seats, and it is difficult to watch the games from the audience seats (about 10 steps) behind them because the pillars obstruct them. Note that the pillars on the lower side have moved upwards as the cost increases.

At the center under the roof of the silver umbrella, a notice is set up to notify the start and end of a match in high school baseball. This motor siren is made by AWN type.

In the central part of the silver umbrella, TV stations jointly cooperated for use in baseball relay.High definitionA compatible remote control camera is installed. Since this camera is installed in two units, terrestrial parallel broadcasting (in high school baseballNHKCommercial broadcastIn professional baseball, with the Osaka stationSun TV) Can be used for each one.

The ball, which has risen above the silver umbrella, falls through the rain gutter onto the roof of the Royal Suite.


The infield is black soil, the outfield isNatural grassSo, along the outfield fence and along the infield stand (not including the Alps) of the foul groundArtificial grassIs stretched.Hanshin Electric Railway subsidiaryHanshin gardeningIs in charge of ground maintenance.

The current size is 118m for mid-sized, 95m for both wings, and the ground area is about 13,000m.2It is announced that the middle of the left and right is 118m.

Since the opening, the size of the ground has changed frequently. In the summer of 1934, due to the revision of the foul zone size rule (from 1931ft to the current 90ft in 60), the home base was moved to the back of the back net, and the numbers on both wings became shorter, but the whole became wider. .. In 1936, with the renovation of the outfield stand and the expansion of the Alps stand on the ground side, it became closer to the present. In the photographs of the 1950s, you can see the display of "3 ft (≈390 m)" in the center and three places between the left and right. A lucky zone was set up in 118.9 (initially it was a measure only when professional baseball was held, but it is also used when high school baseball is held from the summer of 1947).The position was changed several times during the installation, and when the home base was relocated in 1949 to match the remodeling of the infield stand and became nominally 1976m for mid-sized and 120m for both wings, the lucky zone was changed from the conventional one. There is also a renovation that sticks out to the front.[40].

Lucky zone removed in 1991 (some are close to Koshien History Museum and Koshien Stadium)Hyogo Prefectural Nishinomiya Imazu High SchoolIt is preserved in the courtyard).After that, from off 2007 to the renovation, mid-sized 120m, both wings 96m, ground area 14,700m2(This number was the largest at the home of the NPB baseball team), and it was said that the distance between the left and right was 119m.However, there is no correct drawing even in the Legal Affairs Bureau because the real estate registration was not done due to the field renovation that had been done so far, and there is no record of the survey conducted when the lucky zone was removed. This nominal size has long been questioned because there was no proof of those numbers (baseball field researcher Masayoshi Sawayanagi wrote in his book The Latest Baseball Field Encyclopedia (Okusha, 1999). Medium-sized 118.1m, both wings 94.7m, left and right middle 117.9m were announced).After all, due to the actual measurement accompanying the major renovation, the numerical value of the ground area was changed to the current one in 2008, and the numerical value of the mid-sized and both wings was changed to the current one in 2009.[41]..The ground had already become a little narrower due to the renovation, but it goes back to the past to 13,500m.2It was corrected.but,Shinya Sakai(The Tigers owner at the time) still claimed that the fairground area was the largest in the home of the Nippon Professional Baseball team.[42].

However, the shape of the outfield fence that "draws an arc centered on the home base like a softball field and is narrowed down to a steep angle near the foul pole" is a peculiar thing that can not be seen in other stadiums in Japan. The part from the middle of the left and right to the side of both wings is the deepest in Japan (it was made according to the nominal value of Koshien Stadium before renovation.Hiroshima Prefectural Bingo Sports Park Baseball Field(Excluding Onomichi / Shimanami Baseball Field)) There is also a direction to call it a "wide stadium" based on this.

Foul grounds were often said to be vast from their former nominal values, but in reality they are.Chiba Marine Stadium,Sapporo DomeIt is less than that of the base line and the base line and base are 2007ftIt has been cut to a point close to the regulation (about 18.3m).

The infield ground is a unique black soil, and it is the only one in the home ground of the 12 teams that the infield is not turf.Kagoshima,Okayama,Tottori,OitaBlack soil in JapanChugokuFujian ProvinceBlended with white sand. Considering the amount of rainfall and the amount of sunlight in the season, the blending condition is changed by adding a lot of white sand in the spring (black soil 5.5: white sand 4.5) and a lot of black soil in the summer (black soil 6: white sand 4). This is to make it easier for the stand spectators to see the whereabouts of the ball, which shows a violent movement in the infield.

at firstAwaji IslandSoil was used. Soil properties were studied and research continued, and the selling price of the Koshien residential area that was sold around the same time was 40 yen per tsubo at that time.[43] However, he said that he spent 50 yen per tsubo on the ground of the stadium.

In high school baseball, it is customary for players to bring this soil home.However,CoronaAfter 2020, which was hit by the sword, it is prohibited to take out.

In 2005, a plan to use turf for Uchino came up, but it remains soil until now.[44].


The outfield ground is natural grass except near the fence.At the beginning of the opening, the outfield was also a soil ground, but grass was laid from December 1928 to February 12.

For natural grass, since 1982OverseedOf the so-called turfDouble cropThe method is adopted. By using the summer grass "Tifton" and the winter grass "Perennial ryegrass", it became possible to play on the green grass all year round. Switching from summer turf to winter turf is from late September to early October, and switching from winter turf to summer turf is from late April to early May. It was replaced by the same product in the off season of 9. The removed items are transferred to public schools in Osaka and Hyogo prefectures.

In the case of natural turf, it is difficult to grow turf near the fence in the outfield, so there are many stadiums that also serve as a warning zone, but at Koshien Stadium, turf is stretched up to the fence, and the warning zone is on the turf. It is provided by drawing a white line (the distance from the fence to the white line is 4.57 m, and artificial turf is laid within that range).

Previously, soil was put in the outfield foul line part and about 1 m near the outfield fence (the foul line part is the same black soil as the infield, and the part near the fence isRed soil), In 2009, at the request of the players' association, all but the fence side was made into turf (the foul line is drawn directly on the turf).Regarding red soil near the fence, artificial turf will be used from 2018 (first in the field) due to maintenance problems such as flowing out in rainy weather.Furthermore, from 2022, this artificial turf part has been expanded to the 4.57m point from the fence, which is the standard for international games.[45].


In KoshienPitchers moundIt is said that it is softer than that of a general stadium because it uses black soil.[46], Many pitchers have a reputation for being easy to throw[47][48][49].. On the other hand, foreign pitchers who are familiar with hard mounds may have difficulty adapting to their unique softness.[50]There are many Japanese pitchers who like hard mounds such as fastball pitchers and tall pitchers.[46], The softness is adjusted according to the pitcher's preference, and especially in the match hosted by Hanshin, the mound is prepared according to the starting pitcher of Hanshin of that match.[51][52].

In recent years, the soil of the stepped part has been made hard beforehand.[53], Remodeling the mound itself with soil that is said to be harder than before.[46][54], Tend to promote mound hardening.

There is a faucet at the rear of the pitcher plate. Before the game, 7-8 maintenance personnel lined up in a row and sprinkled water all over the infield with a large hose, which was often broadcast before the game in high school baseball telecasts. This water is well water, and because it is close to the sea, it contains some salt and is not suitable for drinking. In the past, when a drought occurred in Kinki in midsummer in the summer, people who did not know that they were using well water had a problem of “overuse of water”.


The bench has two rows of plastic chaise lounges, a seat bar near the fence and a total of three rows of seats. The front row benches and bars are open-air, but the structure is such that a roll-up type roof can be pushed out when it rains. In addition, an air conditioner is installed as a measure against summer heat.

The benches are dug below the ground on both the 1st and 3rd bases, so if a fielder chases a foul ball and plunges into the bench, he or she may fall off his head. In fact, at the announcement immediately after the renovation in March 2008,(I.e.Since the director pointed out several deficiencies such as the danger of falling and the low ceiling, it was urgently repaired and reconstructed into the current appearance.[55].

Before the renovation, there were 3 rows of benches, but since the 2008 season it has been changed to 2 rows. After that, there was a request from the scene that the entire bench was lower than the ground, making it difficult to transmit the signature, so we were ready for the opening of 2018.MAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium HiroshimaThe major league style, which has been adopted by other companies, has been renovated. In addition to the conventional two-row bench, a seat bar without a backrest was installed between the front row bench and the fence.[56].. At the same time, air conditioning was strengthened.[55].

The back of the bench is a waiting room when you go down the stairs, and a large mirror is installed here, so reserve players can check the swing by swinging. In addition, these are only the third base sideStadium tourIt is possible to visit.


As mentioned above, the outfield fence has a unique shape, and it is difficult to handle cushion balls, especially when fouling poles. The structure of the fence is generally a combination of rubber and wire mesh, but rubber has been available since 2004.Solar industryMade ofmajorThe wind is thick, and the hit ball often bounces at the top of the rubber[57].. The rubber of the Alps stand is from 2009Teijin FiberMade[58] Is. Before hitting the current rubber, the hit ball may bounce at the top of the rubber, so in the first year of removal of the lucky zone"Phantom Home Run" CaseHappened and new rules were added to the rules. Although the height of the outfield fence has not been announced, Masayoshi Sawanagi has set it to 2.6m (rubber part 1.9m, wire net part 0.7m) and may be 3.0m.


Inside the Alps stand 1st floor is a simple indoor practice area, which has been around since 1999 for professional baseball.bull-penAre using. When the pitcher changes, the relief pitcher moves from here, and from the passage between the Alps stand and the outfield stand.Relief carRide to the mound (however, the relief car can be driven up to the boundary between the natural grass in the outfield and the soil in the infield).Before becoming an indoor practice area, the gymnasium is on the 1st base side and 3m of hot water is on the 25rd base side.PoolMet. "The indoor practice area on the 3rd base side has a high floor", "Many manholes are located outside the 3rd base side indoor practice area", and other parts reminiscent of the original pool Can still be confirmed.

high school baseballAt the time of the match, the indoor practice area will be used as a warm-up area for the teams participating in the next match, so a temporary bullpen for one set of batteries will be installed on the foul ground. Before the renovation off 1, two sets of batteries were permanently installed, and for a while after the removal of the lucky zone (2007-2), this bullpen was also used in professional baseball. After the renovation in 1992, the foul ground became narrower, so it was removed when professional baseball was held, but it became permanent again from 1998.[59]..However, it was not used at the time of professional baseball, and it was removed again in June 2017 due to safety concerns (the fielder could chase the ball and stumble on the bullpen mound), and at the time of high school baseball. It was decided to install it temporarily only[60][61].

Before 1991, there was a bullpen in the lucky zone, so relief cars also came out of here.Relief cars have been used since 1964, but initially they were two-seater rather than automobiles.scooterWas (the first boarding wasGene Bucky..2nd round against Hiroshima, 4nd in the 2th inning, 2nd and 3rd base, starting lineupIshikawa greenBucky who relievedHanshin gardeningI got on my scooter and headed for the mound[62]).

In addition to supplying vehicles from 2021Salesforce.comJapanese corporation[Note 16]Has become a relief car sponsor and has the Salesforce logo affixed to it.

Indoor practice area / clubhouse

The indoor practice field was set up under the Alps stand on the 1978rd base side (currently the bullpen) in 3, but it was too small, so in 2004, a part of the tennis court that was on the site of the Koshien Waterway Stadium was diverted. An indoor practice area was built.The total construction cost is about 9 million yen and the area is 3,600m.2..It is connected to the 1st base side stand by an overpass so that it will not come into contact with the outside.It is basically for Tigers players, but it may also be used by players from other teams (during the Tigers expedition, it was also on the expedition).SoftbankSometimes borrowed). In addition,12 teams joint tryoutIt was also used as a venue (it was originally planned to be open to the public at the stadium itself, but on the day it was closed to the indoor practice field due to rain).

A clubhouse was built next to it in the spring of 2007.This is a project related to major renovation, and the facilities for athletes and related parties that were previously scattered around the stadium are concentrated in one place.It has 4 floors above ground, with a parking lot for people involved on the 1st floor, facilities for athletes (locker room, training room, etc.) on the 2nd floor, a baseball team office on the 3rd floor, and a rooftop on the 4th floor.[64].

Night equipment

It consists of 2 lighting towers, 2 on the silver umbrella, 2 infields (behind the Alps stand), and 6 outfields.This configuration has not changed since it was newly installed in 1956, but the shape and the position and type of lamps have changed with the times.

It is also the birthplace of "cocktail rays" that combine multiple lamps.[65], When it was installed in 1956Incandescent lampMercury lampWas used in combination.It was born from an attempt to evenly illuminate the entire stadium with a color tone close to that of natural light by combining an orange incandescent lamp and a pale mercury lamp.[66]. afterwards,Color renderingIn 1974 to increaseMetal halide lampHigh pressure sodium lampThis continued until 2021 instead of the combination of[67].

The outfield lighting tower was installed directly on the stand until the outfield seat renovation work was carried out in 2008 (see the image on the right). Since two pillars were built in the audience seats for each lighting, the field of view was significantly narrowed, especially from the audience seats immediately after the pillars. Since 1, it has been supported by two iron pillars outside the stand and two iron pillars at the top of the stand, making it easier to see from any seat, and two large advertising signs have been installed in the two outfields.Also, when the silver umbrella was replaced in the renovation work carried out at the same time in the infield, two vertical rows of lamps extending horizontally instead of the lighting tower on the silver umbrella were ivy seats along the silver umbrella. One was installed around the position of the breath seat.

From 2022, as part of efforts related to "promotion of environmental conservation"LEDI'm using a lamp[68]..This LED lamp is not an off-the-shelf product, but is manufactured by the manufacturer in order to faithfully reproduce the light from the cocktail rays up to that point.PanasonicIs a custom-made product originally developed by[65]..In addition, we followed the conventional cocktail beam by using multiple types of equipment considering the installation location, irradiation target area, appearance at the time of use, and custom-made equipment.[69][70]..In addition, by adopting a dimming system based on the communication standard DMX used for stage lighting, it is possible to produce light that matches the production inside the venue, in addition to smoother dimming.[71]In professional baseball, characters and illustrations are displayed using a lighting tower mainly in night game games.By changing the lighting tower to LED,carbon dioxideIn addition to being expected to have an environmental effect of reducing (Co2) emissions to about 60% of the conventional level, measures have been taken to prevent light pollution from lighting outside the stadium.[72].

In addition, the night game after LED conversion precedes professional baseball.94th Selected High School Baseball TournamentMade in.

Ivy and outer wall

At the time of completion, the outer wall of the stadium was still concrete, and in December 1924, the vines that covered the outer wall were planted as a measure to improve the appearance at a low cost. The area around Gates 12 and 7 in front is easy to grow even in poor sunlight.Ivy of the family AraliaceaeAnd the other parts drop leaves in winterIvy of the vine familyWas adopted and managed by Hanshin Gardening. At one time, about 430 plants were planted and the total area of ​​leaves was said to be about 8,000 tatami mats.

The ivy was once removed during the renewal work, and the outer wall was covered with bricks before being replanted.After removing the ivy, until it was bricked, the outer wall was covered with a green panel that imaged the ivy instead.The ivy was distributed to 2000 high school baseball federation member schools nationwide as part of the 20th Century High School Baseball Memorial Project in 4,170, and is still being raised.[73].. Among them, seedlings in good growing condition were collected from 233 schools and began to be planted at Koshien Stadium on June 2008, 6 as "return to ivy village".[74]..The nameplate engraved with the names of these 233 schools is at the base of the left stand lighting tower support.Eventually, the entire surface will be returned to the outer wall covered with ivy, but only the front of the stadium has been changed to glass.

First generation

At the time of its opening, the Koshien Stadium scoreboard was a temporary board that only posted scores. This is because the stadium was built in time to hold the summer high school baseball in 1924, so the permanent ones were not in time. In 1925, a scoreboard that also displays player names was officially opened. From this time, the players and team names of the Mincho type, which are unique to the stadium, were written. Both positions were a little closer to the lights than the current center. Still around this timeBack screenThere was no concept of, and all seats were behind the center.

However, the scoreboard at that time was up to XNUMX times[Note 17] I could only write down to. 1926 Summer GamesShizuoka Junior High School - Maebashi Junior High SchoolMatch ofExtension nineteen timesIt went on until the permanent scoreboard and quickly surpassed the temporary scoreboard. Then in the 1933 semifinalsAkashi Junior High School - Chukyo CommerceMatch ofXNUMXth extensionIt was a match of 0-0 until then, and it was hard to see because the panel of 0 continued to line up in the temporary tower, so in 1934 the scoreboard was rebuilt in the rear of the center. In 1936, the back screen was installed at the same time as the remodeling of the outfield stand.

2 generation

The second-generation scoreboard was used for a total of half a century from 2 to 1934.Player name notation on the left side of the scoreboard, clock and ball count in the middle (however, strike is also a red lamp), referees, score on the right (initially up to 1983 times in the upper row, lower row after XNUMX times extension[Note 18] Was written). Since the outfield stand was built to fit the stand before renovation, the height is about half of the current third-generation scoreboard (score display part andMitsubishi ElectricIt was hard to see after the remodeling of the outfield stand because it was near the border of the green part where there was an advertisement) and the position was closer to the home.

Initially, the staff of the vehicle department of Hanshin Electric Railway operated the score and ball count remotely, but when the night equipment was completed in 1956, it was used to cover the mechanical part from rain.GlassSince it is hard to see due to reflection, remove the glass and repair it manually. Twelve times the score was displayed in 1958[Note 19] And, the lower row was changed to show the results of the day's match (in the case of professional baseball, the progress of other stadiums). Player names on the second generation scoreboard and team names for high school baseball are all white by the staff of the stadium.paintIt was handwritten using. All player namesMincho typeIt was written in a unique typeface close to that of the Ming dynasty, and it was a little wider than the Mincho typeface, so the whole character was dull.Even at the time when there were few electric signs, there were few stadiums that displayed player names in Mincho style.However, since it was basically the size to fill in 2 characters, it is still difficult to display and fill in the player name of 3 characters or more in 4 characters, and the team name is alsoHiroshima CommerceIt was basically 2 characters in size, such as "Kousho". Both the typeface and the craftsmanship required advanced skills. In addition, the work was done behind the scoreboard, so in the summer, the heat was more than it was outdoors, and the work was physically exhausting. Professional baseball players (especially Hanshin Tigers players) were treated so that they wouldn't disappear, but other things were easily erased. There are also testimonies that the boards of professional players were made of metal, but the boards for high school baseball were plywood. In high school baseball, if there was a player with the same surname as a professional player, sometimes the board for professional players was reused. In high school baseball games in the rain, the paint on the handwritten parts was often washed off by the rain and became unreadable over time. This condition was often described as "(scoreboard) sheds tears" or "hangs red". These features also created the unique atmosphere of Koshien Stadium, so many old fans have a strong feeling for the second generation scoreboard.

In 1979, the two-screen advertising device "Trivision" was installed on the back screen. (From 2 to 1997, Pentavision, a four-sided advertising device) When the home run comes out, the electric lights around this trivision are illuminated. Trivision has three sides, one of which is for the back screen.

3 generation

After that, the 60th anniversary of the opening of the stadium was the occasion to modernize the scoreboard, and in 1984 the second generation was the motif.Electronic bulletin boardWas installed. The height and position match the outfield stand, and the back screen is below the display. Since the trivision is left as it is, the back screen has two front and rear sides. The light emitting element was the first black and white board in Japan using white lightning, leaving the atmosphere of the second generation. Although the inning display remains in Chinese numerals, the score display for each inning was omitted up to 2 times, but it is now possible to display the total score (total), hits (H), and errors (E). In the case of more than 2 times in the extra time, once-erase all the scores of 1 times and score XNUMX points once, after that, the last digit of the inning number It was displayed at the same kanji number. The score part was divided into parts such as the team name and each inning score. Below the score, there is a large black and white freeboat, and the batting average (AV) and number of home runs (HR) of the batter who stood at the bat during the professional baseball game are displayed.Hero interviewAfter"Rokko gratedA black and white animation was displayed during the chorus.The sub-score board on the back of the back net was also electronically displayed at the same time, and the same score display as the main body, the ball counter, and the record of play (hits, errors, field selection) could be displayed.

From 1993 the right halfMitsubishi Electric OfCRTthe wayAurora visionBy adopting, it became a full-scale freeboard including the score part and it was colorized. The animation of the chorus of "Rokko Oroshi" has been colorized, and since it is now possible to capture videos, commercials will be broadcast during replays during games and during offense and defense changes. The lighting inning display is the same as before (XNUMX to XNUMX[Note 20]) Has been followed, to match the sub-score board that was not updated. After deleting the scores from the eleventh to the tenth, the score from the eleventh is input, and the kanji numbers of the innings after the eleventh are two characters at one character (ten and one to five). Is displayed vertically. The score is displayed in the innings according to the rule's innings (1 selections for high school baseball, 2 selections for professional baseball, and XNUMX selections for professional baseball in spring selection competitions and summer national competitions).Japan Championship SeriesIs 2009 times). The batter's batting average and the number of home runs during professional baseball are also displayed at almost the same positions as before. Also, the ads have changed. In addition, since XNUMX, batting average and number of home runs are also displayed in the liner vision.

In 1997, the name of the player on the left side was updated to a new color CRT with three bright primary colors that can display multiple colors. Until then, the team being attacked was displayed with a horizontal red line, and the batter standing at bat was displayed with the red lamp in the center lit, but they were abolished and are still being followed, the team initials. Only the top and bottom of (or team name) and the part of the batter standing at bat are displayed with a thin red line. At the same time, the team name display part was also expanded.

Aurora Vision from CRT since 2005LEDHas been changed to, so you can enjoy clearer images. The size of the letters in the score part was the same as that of the cathode ray tube, but the number of dots per letter increased from 1 x 16 to 16 x 24, and Aurora Vision was composed of 24 LEDs.

Since 2009, the sub-scoreboard has been updated with the update of the silver umbrella, and the score display has been changed to a freeboard similar to the main scoreboard. Taking advantage of the freedom of layout for both main and sub, in high school baseball, the tenth part of the inning score was removed and displayed from one to nine times, and the team name part was displayed in three letters up to that point. I made it possible to write from 3 characters. The extension is renewed from 4 times (inning score during professional baseball is from XNUMX to XNUMX times as before).

Main scoreboard and sub-scoreboard were refurbished in 2010 off[77].. The main scoreboard is an LED free board that can display videos on the left player name,Hot Motto Field KobeNext to Japan, the second two-sided vision[Note 21] become.

The existing vision on the right side has also been updated to improve resolution and video display performance. Normally, the BSO lamp under the clock is used, but it is also possible to put BSO on the main scoreboard.

From the off season of 2018 to the spring of 2019, a renovation plan was announced with a large vision on the scoreboard[78][79]Started to be used from the open game on the 2019th, after being shown to the media personnel on March 3, 4[80].. The main repair contents are as follows.

  • The size of the score lamp has been reduced and then moved to the top to make the scoreboard one side, which is 1 times the size of the conventional model.
  • The display follows the conventional one with team names and player names in the left half and scores in the upper right half both during professional baseball and high school baseball. In addition, team names, player names, Chinese numbers for innings, etc. are also displayed in Mincho type, following the conventional ones, but numbers such as scores and defense positions and substitute hits / substitutes "bat" "run" are Gothic Adopted the body. It is the same as before that the red line appears in the lower part of the attacking team name and the player name standing at the bat, but the green line is the player name who is running as a runner, and the first player name to hit in the next inning in the defense team. A white line has been added to each. At the 2019th West Japan University Softball Baseball Championship in 36, everything was displayed in Gothic except for the Chinese numerals for batting order and inning numbers.
  • When professional baseball is held, as will be described later, the score is slightly shifted to the left by the amount that the referee's constant display is stopped, the number of pitchers of both teams is shown in the upper right half, and the Tigers player's face photo (attack) in the lower right half.

The player name by position, and if the runner is on base, the base where the runner is located is newly displayed in green.In addition, the referee name is displayed only when the offense and defense change, the pitcher change, the state of the fans of the stadium at the inning interval, and the advertisement display of some sponsor companies during the game.
  • When high school baseball is held, the referee name is displayed in the lower center and the match results and schedule for the day are displayed in the lower right half as usual. With this rehabilitation, high school baseball can be written up to 10 times for the first time in 4 years while keeping the school name as 10 letters.

In professional baseball, in order to give a scoreboard feeling more than before, the player name display for each position of the defensive team in the free space under the score part is not a panoramic view from directly above but a three-dimensional display seen from the home base side ( The infield is brown that imitates black soil, and the outfield is green that imitates the lawn), and the notation of the team name and player name follows the Mincho style, but the team name / player name frame and inning score display frame are three-dimensional. The frame is bordered so that it looks like[81][82][83][84].

With the change of the main scoreboard to a large-scale vision on one side from March 2019, the player names will differ between professional baseball and high school baseball.In professional baseball, the team name is written in one letter of the alphabet in principle, so the left and right margins of the letters of the team name have been reduced, and the display of the player name has moved to the left by about two players.There are no major changes during high school baseball.After this repair, it has been confirmed that up to 3 characters can be displayed in the team name on both the score side and the player name side in the test display.[104], In the actual game, the display was up to 4 characters, and the conventional notation was followed.In professional baseball games, until 2019, the team names on either side are not kanji, but the abbreviation of the alphabet (Hanshin Tigers →) like the scoreboard of Tokyo Dome.T, Yomiuri Giants →G, Yokohama DeNA Baystars →DBEtc.) was displayed.

Until 2010, the notation of the ball court is the only baseball stadium in the base of 12 professional baseball teams.ChCH was used, which is an abbreviation for "ief umpire" (in the past,Chunichi Stadium,Heiwadai baseball fieldThe ball referee is referred to as CH), but after the scoreboard repair, like other stadiums "Plate umpire (Plate umpire) is changed to PL, which is an LED. In addition, the notation of the first base is a combination of Roman numerals and B, such as XNUMXst base → IB · XNUMXnd base → IIB · XNUMXrd base → IIIB, which was also LED at the time of renovation.

Is supposed to display[105].. On the other hand, in professional baseballShynessOnly when is displayed below the score display is "Declaration shy away".
Also, from the time of the 2nd generation scoreboard, the current batter's indicator lamp had nine red lamps between the player name of the upper visitor and the home player of the lower player. The third generation scoreboard was also followed by nine red lamps (there are ten player names displayed, but in the DH system, the pitcher cannot enter the bat). From 9, the red line that displayed the attacking team between the ramp and the player name and position until then (from the first to the ninth, in the DH system to the pitcher's place is connected to one line) A) was abolished and it was started to display with a short red line separating each player name. Beginning in 3, only for professional baseball games, the players who are running bases will be displayed in green lines, and the first batter after the change of offense and defense will be displayed in white lines (as in high school baseball, as before, Red line only).
While many other stadiums set the substitute position as "H" and "PH" and the substitute position as "R" and "PR", the substitute position at Koshien Stadium is "hit", the substitute run is "goIt is also characterized by the Chinese character notation. However, when performing in the DH system such as an open game, the designated batter is "DH" and the pitcher is "P"[Note 26] Is written[106].
Like the players, the scoreboard part is different between professional baseball and high school baseball as the main scoreboard was changed from March 2019.At the time of professional baseball, the information of the player standing in the turn at bat is displayed at the right end of the screen, so the entire score display moves so that the team name comes to the lower left of the BSO lamp.There is no big change in the display position during high school baseball, but the 3th part of the inning score is revived while the team name can be written up to 4 kanji characters. Display up to 11[107]), in contrast to professional baseballAll starThen, the part was deleted 9 times because it was up to XNUMX times without extension.The sub scoreboard has also been changed to the same specifications as the main scoreboard.

There is also a difference in the wording from professional baseball, such as "This is Mr. 4".[Note 27].

Koshien Liner Vision

Ribbon-shaped LED board made by Mitsubishi Electric installed when the silver umbrella was refurbished in 2008 (Aurora ribbon). The size is 1.2m long x 249.6m wide. It has been widely adopted in the United States, and was announced as the first in Japan to be adopted in 2006.Kleenex Stadium Miyagi(First installed in Japan in 2007)Chiba Marine Stadium(Established in 2008). In professional baseball games, video footage of Tigers support and player introductions, commercials, total season results of players standing at bat and hit record on the day, ball count by digital number display[Note 28], Bulletin of other stadiums (sometimes the video is linked with the video of Aurora Vision), etc., also display the results of the match that day in high school baseball.

In addition, NTT DoCoMoThe message is collected from the fans of "DOCOMO Owen Koshien" by the offer, and the cheering message is being sent before the match and using the inning interval. Initially, only the official professional baseball match sponsored by Hanshin was played, but support messages were also broadcast in high school baseball in the summer of 2012.

In the 2011 Rakuten Eagles-sponsored game, "Ganbaro Tohoku" (wine red white letters) and the Rakuten Eagles logo, or advertisements of companies sponsored by the team were displayed.

In the Tigers-sponsored match, an advertisement for Mitsubishi Electric will be displayed after the "3" in the third inning. In the early days, "Mitsubishi Electric Aurora Vision", "Mitsubishi Electric Aurora Ribbon" and "MITSUBISHI" were displayed on the background of light blue (formerly Mitsubishi Electric's corporate color), but from the 3 season, "(Three diamonds) MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC" Is displayed.


Lucky zoneIn the very early days of the installation (early 1950's), I used to stick an advertising sign directly to the lucky zone, but from the latter half of the 1950s it became a form of sticking to a fence.

At Koshien Stadium, advertising signs are posted on fences, stands, and benches, but during the national high school baseball tournamentJapan High School Baseball FederationFor the back net, the advertisement is hidden by a rubber sheet.High school baseball Hyogo prefectural tournament, or "AAA Asian Baseball ChampionshipAt the time of (baseball tournament in high school age in Asia), the game is played in the same condition as usual, without hiding the advertising fence.

Regarding the outfield fence,Selected High School Baseball TournamentOnly at that time was a white school board with the school badge, school name, and the number of times the championship was won. This school board was posted from the 1932th convention of 7, but in 198456th competitionPlayed in the first match on the second daySaga merchantversusTakashimaIn the game, one bound in the outfield and enter the lucky zone, if it was originallyEntitle to baseThe referee made a mistakeHome runThe traditional school board was removed from the next day because there was an incident that would have been judged. This is because the school board was white and large, making it difficult to see the ball.

The fence part1983 Summer GamesAll removable fields[Note 29] However, since the rubber was attached to the infield in 1984, the advertisement in the infield was exposed as it was, and the advertisement in the outfield and back net area was hidden (the advertisement near the lucky zone was removable. )It became so. The tournament name display in the middle of the left and the middle of the right is 1985 for the spring convention.57 timesAfter that, we changed the method of hiding advertisements from the white panel with a sheet of white letters in green. The summer tournament was originally written in white letters on the green area, and in 198567 timesUp to the convention, it was a panel type that was separated by one character (for the number of times of the convention, a two-digit number was collected on one sheet), but in 168 timesAfter the tournament, the seats were put on like the spring tournament.

When the lucky zone was removed in 1992 and a rubber was attached to the outfield, the green sheet with the tournament name was used to hide the advertisement.

  • (Example) Normally, the organizer's credits are displayed on the fence part in the middle of the left and the tournament name in the middle of the right.

From 2010, the advertisement of the outfield fence will be put out as it is, and the competition name will be posted on the fence near the back net. This is the 14 companies/organizations that offer outfield fence advertising.[Note 30] Was newly established under the outfield seatKoshien History MuseumThis is because the company became a sponsor of "History Museum", and to collect a large amount of materials related to high school baseball at the History Museum. For this reason, after discussing with Takanoren, which sponsors and sponsors the high school baseball tournament, and Asahi and Mainichi Newspapers, the fence advertisement will not be hidden during the high school baseball period.[108][109].

I came to do it.The tournament name is displayed on the left side of the back net (closer to the 1st base side), and the host organization display is displayed on the rotating advertising signboard on the same right side (closer to the 3rd base side).
