Daiei's business condition, which has continued since the huge debt surfaced in 1967, is finally imminent, and Daiei withdrew from the team management on January 1th.Nagata also resigns as the owner.Lotte was the secretary of the shoreNakamura NagayoshiAt the same time, it officially acquired the team and became the parent company, and the company name became "Lotte Orions" which is the same as the team name.[Note 6]..Lotte has been in possession of the team for over 40 years, the longest of the six Pacific League teams in existence.Lotte PresidentTakeo ShigemitsuWas not very interested in baseball at that time, so Nakamura was appointed as the owner.

However, Lotte showed difficulty in cost-effectiveness and requested parallel renewal of leasing, and negotiations followed parallel lines. Eventually, I was appointed a director off-seasonShoichi KanedaHowever, the negotiations broke down because he violently opposed, "There is no bulge on both wings and it is easy to hit a home run. There is no need to buy a pitcher's crying stadium."The Tokyo Stadium was closed and Lotte lost its home ground.It is the same that Kaneda became the directorKoreans living in JapanShigemitsu said, "Please make me the director of Lotte Orions. I will definitely invite customers. I will show you a first-class team. Please trust Kaneda." It has become.Shigemitsu, who was impressed by the request of a national hero who lived in Japan, made a promise with Kaneda and gave him exceptional authority as well as being appointed as a director.[11]..Kaneda's appointment as a manager was to abandon the five-year contract he had with Osawa in the off-season of the previous year, and the team was forced to pay a penalty to Osawa.In addition, Koyama was traded to the ocean according to Kaneda's policy, but Koyama was reluctant because of his promise with Nakamura, and the team paid a contribution and saw the conclusion.

Sales/fan service

Lotte began working to improve fan service around 1993, the year after the base was relocated to Chiba City, and Lotte was the first in the professional baseball world to introduce home visitors in the outfield seats and support by wearing replica uniforms. did. According to Kenichi Yokoyama, who worked for Lotte Marines team for many years after working as a member of Lotte's infield cheering team, it was launched at the same time.サ ッ カ ー-J LeagueStartedMajor League,Ice hockeyWith reference to domestic and overseas sports support, the team and cheering team established a new cheering style.[120].

In 1996, replica uniforms for visitors were made at the request of fans.Initially, it was opposed to "Why make a uniform to wear at another stadium?", But it was realized with Yokoyama's persuasion.[121].

Ryuzo SetoyamaBecame the team representative,Bobby valentineSince 2004, when he returned to coaching, the Chiba Marine Stadium's "ball park concept" was set as a policy, and he began to make efforts for active fan service.Professional baseball reorganization problemAs a result, when Lotte's possibility of leaving Chiba was raised and a cooperative relationship with the local government was formed, community-based fan service was developed more actively.Sep-pa Exchange BattleSaw this whenHanshin TigersFormer ownerShunjiro KumaWas impressed with "this is fan service". Also,Keiyo LineOf the nearest stationKaihama Makuhari Station OfDeparture melodyAlso changed to "We Love Marines" from March 2005, 3, and coexistence with the area continues to be appealing everywhere around the stadium.Shigeo Araki, then general manager of the business division, contributed greatly to the series of improvements in fan service, and when Araki was in office, it was said that "the best fan service among the 26 teams is Marines."

Ball park concept

The biggest obstacle to the "ball park concept" was the gap between the team and the administration. Due to the lack of growth in the number of spectators in Lotte since the relocation of Chiba and financial difficulties in the city, the government side such as Chiba City is not very active in renovating or expanding the facility, and even if the team plans a fan service, the government side There were many cases where people refused to approve using the regulations as a shield. In addition, Chiba Marine Stadium is located in Chiba City,Makuhari Seaside ParkThe site outside the stadium, such as a parking lot, which was a part of, was managed by Chiba Prefecture. Therefore, in the past, it was impossible to set up a shop or post a corporate advertisement on the fence at all, and the team didn't make any money. Since 2004, we have improved this with the cooperation of the prefecture and the city, installed shops and stalls on the stadium premises, created a place to interact with animals, started posting fence advertisements inside the stadium, There were developments such as the provision of a crib in the stand.

Plan of 2004 teams in 10 professional baseball reorganization problemThen, the idea of ​​merging Lotte and Daiei into "Fukuoka Lotte Hawks" was proposed.The possibility that Lotte will leave Chiba creates a sense of crisis on the administrative side, and the prefecture and city have significantly relaxed the restrictions on the use of Chiba Marine Stadium by amending the ordinance, etc., and from 2006Designated manager systemIntroduce the team to the Chiba Marine StadiumDesignated administratorCurrently, the baseball team and the government are working together to develop community-based measures, such as outsourcing the operation to

360 degree all seats

Since 2005, Lotte has been calling it "360 degree all seats unreserved seats" and is conducting a fan service plan for two games every summer, with all seats in the Chiba Marine Stadium, which is the home base, as unreserved seats and discounting tickets at a flat rate.

In the first place, this plan for all non-reserved seats was planned for June 2005th and June 6th, 28 in Korea.Fukuoka Softbank Hawks) Has been canceled (Later), was proposed as an alternative project. The two games that were discontinued in Korea were scheduled to be held in Chiba Marine as substitutes, but they are weekday night games with lower mobilization compared to weekends, and are not covered by the season seat contract on the assumption that they will be held in Korea. Therefore, the team sales department decided to hold the event.

All the seats were set to free seats based on the idea of ​​"making it possible for visitors to see the game from various angles with various seats", and the admission fee is 1500 yen for adults and 500 yen for children. It was the first attempt of the NPB12 team's official game. In addition, as a result of examining the plan plan on the day, "At the festival before summer,beer gardenThe direction of "a project that can be exciting like this" was decided, and it was decided to implement services such as selling beer at half the normal price (1 yen per cup, discounting soft drinks to 300 yen), and the project title is "200 degree beer stadium" It was named.As a result, both days attracted a large number of spectators, far exceeding the number of regular weekday night games, and were generally well received. The following 360 season, "Beer Stadium" will be held twice, on June 2th against Nippon-Ham Fighters and on August 2006th against Softbank (however, drinks will be sold only at the booth, and salespeople will be sold on a patrol basis. In the game in June, the number of people was 6, the highest number at that time, since the announcement of each spectator was started.

In 2007, the idea of ​​the event was solicited from general fans, and the all-seat unreserved seat plan was to be implemented as a two-pronged "support stadium" and "beer stadium".First of all, the "Support Stadium" will be held on July 2rd against Orix.Not only the right wing side of the normal outfield stand but also the first base side of the infield stand will be the cheering seats, and a cheering board contest will be held during the innings.Also as a guestMachiko WatanabeEtc. (partiallyLater), various projects were held. The annual "Beer Stadium" was held on July 7 against Rakuten, attracting 31 spectators, the largest number of all free seat plans.

In this plan for all non-reserved seats, because the movement of the audience is significantly different from the usual situation by making all seats free in the stand, the team sales department conducts detailed research on the venue day. The survey items cover details such as "Which seats on the stand have the needs?" "What kind of spectator style do you have?", and the survey results are reflected in the team's sales strategy such as future fan service and seat setting. There is.

The special seats provided in the marine stadium are different in handling this project. If you wish to buy a ticket for the "Field Wing Seat" in the foul area on the 1st and 15000rd base side, you must purchase the advance admission ticket in advance and apply for the lottery, and only the winner will be issued a seat reservation ticket To be done. Also, if you want a ticket for the "picnic box" on the third base side of the infield on the first floor, you need to apply for the lottery, and the ticket will be sold only to the winners (the selling price is 7500 yen instead of the usual 5 yen. Since there are 1 people, 1500 yen per person). In order to ensure the safety of the spectators, this measure is handled as a "reserved seat" because both seats must comply with the prescribed capacity, and the application for these lottery is accepted at the Marines Online Ticket Shop. It will be held 3 weeks before the date. However, the "Marines Press Sheet" adjacent to the press booth behind the net is not subject to seat setting and price, and is the same as usual.

Phantom merger plan

Mainichi Orions, the predecessor of the current Chiba Lotte Marines, was founded in 1949 and in 1957.Daiei UnionsAfter the merger with the transfer of management rights and renamed to the present, but since the same year, two times involved in the idea of ​​merging the baseball team involved in the reorganization of professional baseball.

Plan to merge with Nitaku in 1973

In 1973, Lotte OrionsGypsy eraThe first season is over. On the other hand, like Lotte, Tokyo was a protected areaToei FlyersDue to the management difficulties of the owner company, the management right of the team was granted on February 2, the same year.ToeiからNitaku HomeWas renamed to "Nitaku Home Flyers", but in the same year, the Pa League had a difficult time mobilizing the audience (although in the same year, Lotte recorded the largest audience mobilization in the history of Pa). Win the Japan Series by winning the playoffsNankai HawksAlsoYomiuri GiantsLosing 1 win and 4 losses before (Giants), GiantsV9Allowed. In this situation, Nitaku owner Akitaka Nishimura decided after the season that "the Pa League has no future", merged Nitaku and Lotte, and began planning to move to the one-league system. ..

As mentioned above, Lotte had been forced to live in a gypsy at the time, so it sought an environment in which it was possible to hold host games at all times in the Tokyo metropolitan area. Also the owner of LotteTakeo ShigemitsuIt was said that the signing of the merger was a matter of time because it was speculated that the team management would not be too obsessed. Furthermore, in the Kansai area, the idea of ​​merging baseball teams was also taken into account, and there were early reports that "10 baseball teams would become one league".

However, Shigemitsu denied this merger.In the end, the merger itself soon became a breach, and Nishimura, who was disgusted by the ball world, took control of the team.Nippon HamSold to, the situation has settled (the details of this seriesProfessional Baseball Reorganization Problem (1973)See).

2004 World Reorganization Problem

Also, in 2004Osaka Kintetsu BuffaloesWith the idea of ​​a merger between Orix Bluewave and Orix Blue Wave, a reorganization problem broke out in addition to the transition to the 1 league system and the number of teams was odd because the number of teams was odd.Professional Baseball Reorganization Problem (2004)See).

In this process, Lotte was the parent company at that time.DaieiIt turned out that he applied for a merger with Fukuoka Daiei Hawks, which was said to be difficult to maintain the baseball team due to financial difficulties.The owner company is Lotte, the home isFukuoka Dome, Chiba Marine Stadium was the base of the second army, and the team name was "Fukuoka Lotte Hawks".Also with LotteSeibu LionsMerged with "Lotte Lions" and LotteYakult SwallowsThere was also a plan to merge them into "Lotte Swallows".[Note 44]This also did not happen because Seibu and Yakult announced that they would own the team alone.

After all, Daiei was off the same yearIndustrial Revitalization OrganizationWith the support of[Note 45], The HawksSoftbankSold toFukuoka Softbank HawksIt became.

Lotte Headquarters has a team since 1971 (Team name sponsorSince 1969), as of 2005, he has the oldest management rights among the six existing Pacific League teams.

This is not the first issue of relocation to Fukuoka, and when Kazuhisa Inao took over as director in 1984 during the Kawasaki Stadium era,Heiwadai baseball fieldIt is said that he accepted his appointment on the premise of the realization of the relocation to the US, but the relocation of the headquarters was not realized at this time either.

Grudges with Lions

Plan to sell the team to the phantom Daiei

Lotte had considered selling the Orions team at the time in the late 1980s. Two years ago in 1987 (2)Hanshin TigersAfter winning the championship, he contacted Daiei, a major retailer who was interested in the management of professional baseball teams. In addition to the talks between Lotte and Daiei, we will increase the number of Lotte products handled at Daiei stores by focusing on administration.Barter tradingAnd evenKobe City or Fukuoka CityThe sale of the Orion's baseball team has reached a certain stage, including consideration of the relocation of the headquarters to (the former was considered as a sub-franchise even when the relocation to the latter was considered strong, but the former was considered as a sub-franchise even when the Fukuoka relocation plan emerged). However, just before the agreement, Lotte changed to a policy of continuing to hold the baseball team and relocating to another base, so the sale of Lotte was canceled and the Fukuoka relocation/Kobe sub franchise was not realized.

However, shortly before the sale of Lotte's baseball team was discontinued, they were seeking to transfer the Hawks baseball team to another company.Nankai Electric RailwayThen, when I got the information that Daiei is considering entering the sphere, it was the main bank of the company and Daiei.Sanwa Bank(CurrentMitsubishi UFJ Bank) Asked for intermediary. As a result,NakauchiChanged its acquisition destination from Lotte Orions and decided to acquire Nankai Hawks[155].. Daiei's long-sought team ownership was realized by moving Hawks to Fukuoka instead of Orions[156].

Nightmare 18 consecutive losses
