Initially, Carp was named "Hiroshima Baseball Club" in Hiroshima Prefecture, Hiroshima City,Kure,Chinese newspaper,Japan Monopoly Corporation(There was a main factory in Hiroshima City),Hiroshima Electric Railway,Toyo KogyoIt was established with the investment of the Hiroshima political and business world.The operating funds are extremely small, and it was dissolved as early as 1951 or in the same Chugoku region at that time.Yamaguchi ShimonosekiWas based inOcean WhalesThe merger with was considered, but it is facing fierce opposition from the public (""# 8 samurai"reference).From this experience, a fund-raising support group was established to support the operation of Carp in its early days.In addition, a fan-based operating fund solicitation activity called "barrel donation" has taken place.the 1960sContinued until[26].

However, in 1955, the amount of debt of "Hiroshima Baseball Club" became enormous, and the Hiroshima business world decided that it was no longer manageable even by the supporters' association, and in order to cancel the debt, "Hiroshima Baseball Club" went bankrupt and newly Established "Hiroshima Carp Co., Ltd." and became the first presidentHiroshima Electric RailwayNobuyuki Ito has been appointed[171].

In 1965Kintetsu BuffaloesThere was an informal merger plan with Carp, and if it merged, it was considered that Carp would formally operate as a surviving team, but the second president'sTsuneji MatsudaIs refusing it.about thatArticle in the relevant sectionSee.

In 1967, Toyo Carp acquired Hiroshima Carp Co., Ltd., and Tsuneji Matsuda became the team owner, but this was in addition to the long-term sluggish team performance at that time.Hiroshima Municipal Stadium (first generation)In response to the fact that the number of spectators mobilized annually decreased sharply due to the calm of Fever (1959: 862,965 → 1967: 622,100), the intention was to settle the battle for initiative among investors and stabilize the operation of the team. It is said that there was, Toyo Kogyo remained in the position of sponsor and refrained from intervening in the management of the team.furtherthe 1970sWhen the Matsuda family became the only manager of the baseball team and local dealers when it came under the control of Sumitomo Bank in the second half, Toyo Kogyo → Mazda was virtually no longer the owner company.This is MazdaFord motorBecame a subsidiarythe 1980sIt hasn't changed since then.However, since it is still the largest shareholder (see below), the team name retains "Toyo," which is the origin of Mazda's former company name.

Mazda still holds 34.2% (22 shares) of the team's shares as the largest shareholder.[172], The operating company is listed in the Mazda Group.Also, the right sleeve and helmet of Carp's uniform, and moreMAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium HiroshimaTo the ticketマ ツ ダWas advertised, and since 2013AtenzaThe relationship between the two companies is deep, with the new color "Soul Red Premium Metallic" adopted for Mazda vehicles being adopted as the helmet color.

The business condition itself is good even though it is an independently profitable system without a parent company in the Japanese professional baseball team, which normally runs a huge deficit without the financial support of the parent company, since 1975. It has been in the black for 2013 consecutive terms until 39.[173]..Especially in 2009MAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium HiroshimaPartly due to the background of the first year of opening, net sales reached a record high of over 117 billion yen.[174].

However, the breakdown of this sales was mostly in 2004 (65 billion yen), with broadcasting rights revenue (28 billion yen), admission revenue (20 billion yen), and sales / advertising revenue (12 billion yen). Was occupied[175]、2009年(117億円)は、入場料収入48億円、グッズ販売20億円、飲食収入20億円とその構成比が大きく変わっている点に留意する必要がある。特にグッズ販売に関しては、2010年・2011年が14億円、2012年は16億5,000万円、2013年は19億5,000万円と、2009年以降も好調な売り上げを記録しており、売上高全体の約2割を占めるまでに成長した[173]..This is 2004Ball world reorganizationTriggered bySep-pa Exchange BattleIs realized.As a result, it was expected that the revenue from broadcasting rights, mainly in the Giants, would drop sharply, so the team, which had a strong sense of crisis, strengthened goods development from this time.[176], Switching weekend games from night games to day games, etc.[177], We are trying to break away from the business style centered on broadcasting rights revenue, which has been a big achievement since 2009.

Following the investment of 2009 billion yen in a facility dedicated to the baseball stadium in 22[178], 2010 construction of a military dormitory (2 million yen)[179], 2012 construction of cleaning factory[180], 2014, renewal of Nigun Senshu shuttle bus (5,000 million yen), construction of indoor practice field next to Mazda Stadium (16 billion yen)[181]After the completion of the new stadium, capital investment has increased.Also in the Dominican RepublicCarp AcademySince 2005, the operating costs have been reduced as part of the team's cost reduction, so it has only trained pitchers, but has resumed fielder training since 2013.

On the other hand, the total annual salary ranking is 12th or lower in recent years, except for the 2007th place in 10 among the 11 professional baseball teams.

It was introduced off 1993FA (Free Agent)Institution and in draftHope entry quota systemの導入により、カープにおいては、1989年には8億円であった選手年俸総額が1997年には16億円と8年間で2倍に急騰、2002年には17億8,900万円に達したものの、2003年以降はドラフトで獲得した選手の伸び悩み、Satoshi Eto,Tomonori Kanemoto,Takahiro Arai,Andy Sheets,Greg LaroccaDue to the outflow of the main hitters, the team's performance was sluggish, and as a result, the total annual salary gradually decreased.However, since the completion of Mazda Stadium in 2009, the total annual salary has gradually increased due to the influence of having acquired a large number of foreign players, and in 2014 it was 20 yen.[Source required].

Although the business condition is good, the financial indicators of the team are not disclosed, so the clear spending situation is completely unknown.Therefore, there are opinions requesting that it be open to the public.

In 2020, the number of visitors to the official game was restricted due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, resulting in a loss of 29 million yen for the current period, but the business situation was good and the deficit was in 3,487. It was the first time in 1974 years since then.Sales decreased by 46 yen from the previous year to 2 yen for the second consecutive year, falling below 83 billion yen for the first time in nine years.Admission revenue decreased by 4,489 million yen to 85 million yen, goods revenue decreased by 5,735 million yen to 9 million yen, and apart from these, about 100 million yen for corona measures such as disinfection and PCR inspection. Was thrown.At the same time, by reducing the capital from the previous 41 million yen to 3,500 million yen, it is treated as a small and medium-sized enterprise under the tax law, and it is now possible to receive tax incentives.[2].

Scouting and training

When mentioning the characteristics of Hiroshima Carp, "skillful scouting and training ability" is often mentioned.[9][182][37][183][184]..Especially during the Golden Age of Red Hell from the mid-1975s to the mid-1980s[183], HiroshimaChugokuThe number of spectators was increased due to factors such as the strong economy of Hiroshima, partly due to the training and success of athletes.[183]..In other words, a virtuous cycle of favorable Hiroshima economy → community-based training of local players → reinforcement by scouting → activity of carp → increase in spectator mobilization → soundness of team management → reinvestment in team strengthening → consecutive championships worked.[183].1979/~1980/It can be said that the number one in Japan for consecutive seasons is the monument built by this section environment.[183]..This raised the players who became the basis of the golden age in HiroshimaRikuo NemotoBut then I was involved in team buildingSeibu Lions,Fukuoka Softbank HawksBut we are reforming the team in the same process[185]..Hawks was introduced in 1993New draft system(Reverse nomination system)FA systemThere is also a theory that the method that makes full use of is a new development of the virtuous cycle mechanism of community-based → team activity → reinvestment seen in Hiroshima Carp, which is acquiring players from local Kyushu.[185]. AlsoOrix Blue WaveIn 1995Great Hanshin-Awaji EarthquakeAgainst the background of this negative legacy, the mechanism that temporarily created a community-based effect and increased the number of spectators was the increase in the number of spectators seen in Hiroshima Carp → enhancement of reinforcement → team activity → reinvestment. Is also argued that was seen[186].

Correspondence to FA declared players

In 1993, even in Nippon Professional BaseballFA systemWas introduced, but Hiroshima at the beginning of the introduction was "No residual (FA residual) after exercising the FA right is allowedWas the policy.This is because there is a risk that the annual salary and contract money of the athlete who exercised the FA right will rise regardless of the activity of the next year or later, and there is a risk of putting pressure on the management of Hiroshima, which lacks financial resources. is there.In addition, Kohei Matsuda's former owner, "The team is a family.The player is a child.Is there a child who weighs and chooses a family?There is also the fact that the team view of "" remains as a lesson.However, for players, it is necessary to exercise the FA right to hear the evaluation of other teams, soAsai(At that time, player chairman)Tomonori KanemotoVeteran players such as Kanemoto have repeatedly negotiated with the team to allow the FA to remain, but in the end it was not accepted and Kanemoto who exercised had no option to remain, so he transferred to Hanshin.

Meanwhile, in 2006 off AceHiroki KurodaMade a statement suggesting the FA Declaration.For the team whose pitchers are weakening, the outflow of Kuroda, who had the only stable record, could be a life-and-death problem for the team, so at this time, he set out a policy of allowing FA to remain exceptionally (after all, Kuroda said The year remained without exercising, but the following year 2007 offLos Angeles DodgersTransferred to FA.After that, he returned to Hiroshima in 2015).Due to this influence, the team also changed its stance and is nowFA residue is basically not allowedAnd softening the attitude[187][188].

In fact, off 2007Takahiro AraiBut off in 2008Teruhiro HigashideBut off in 2018Yoshihiro MaruWhen the team acquired the FA right, the team revealed that it was a policy to allow each player to remain in the FA.[188](Arai and Maru exercised FA rights and transferred to Hanshin and Giants, respectively (Arai later returned to Hiroshima), and Higashide remained without exercising).However, as of 2020, there are no examples of residual after exercise, and some of them are off in 2015.Kimura ShogoEven though he declared FA like this, the team that started to acquire it did not appear, and the re-contract with Hiroshima was not allowed.[187], There is also a case where it was the first FA player to take the joining test of another team (Kimura passed the joining test after that and decided to join Seibu, but in the procedure it is treated as "transfer by exercising FA". Being)[189].

Regarding the acquisition of FA declared players of other teams, Nippon Ham declared FA in 2009.Shugo FujiiInvestigate (do not actually enter the acquisition front)[190], Declared FA from Yokohama in 2010Uchikawa SeiichiWas participating in the acquisition front of.However, since Uchikawa joined Softbank, Hiroshima as of 2020The only team in the Central League 12 teams that has never acquired FA playersIt has become.

Local holding

First local expedition

Carp's first local expedition was on March 1950, 3.Fukuyama Mitsubishi Electric StadiumIt was the first round against China and Japan held at.

On June 6th, the first visitor game in Hiroshima prefecture[Note 46]-OceanThe sixth round against Hiroshima is nowMiyoshi CityIt was held at the Tokaichi Municipal Baseball Stadium.

The venue was a few days agoGrass raceWas heldRiverbed.Horse manureIs falling in placesweedIt is a thick field[191].Audience seatIs on the third base sideRiver bankThe slope isstand..The flat first base sideCarriage,cartI made the audience seats side by side.CushionInstead, with a bundle of XNUMX senwheat OfStraw bundleWhen it was out of stock, I replenished it from the rice field next door.Both army benchesIs an instant bench with a board struck on a log stick to which a horse was connected, and of course there is no roof.A bucket is placed in front of the bench,Firefighter Hand pumpExtend the hose and draw water from a well in a nearby farmhouse and pour it into a bucket.This is the drinking water of the players.score boardIs in elementary schoolblackboard.. I arranged two sheets because it was difficult to read the numbers on one sheet.Outfield fenceStood green bamboo in places and stretched a rough rope around the height of his waist.Double-winged poleImmediately before the match, I noticed that there was no such thing, so I hurriedly pulled out a log for drying rice from the rice field and set it up.

The official game starts in this environment.On the weeds and bumpy ground, Carp hit 5 hits in the 15th inning, and in the 7th inning, he hit 1 long and short hits with one walk from two deaths to 8 points.He scored all starting pitchers, all RBIs, hits every time, and 10 home runs in 1 inning in the middle of the game.[191]..Carp's 28 hits in the match are still Central League records at the end of 2019. 22 points are recorded by the team.

I interviewed this game locallypressIt is,Asahi Shimbun,Kyodo News,Yomiuri ShimbunReporters who have just been in charge of baseball at only three companiesScore bookI had a hard time filling in.From this match, both teams decided to hit a home run if they passed over the outfield fence territory and a double if they passed underneath.[191]..I don't know if he put a customer in the outfield in this game, but when he put a customer in the outfield after that, the fans moved the rope to the advantage of Carp.It was the "Nawa Home Run" described later that caused the problem (# Suspicious home run)[191][192].

Hosted games all over the country

Carp used to be actively engaged in local expeditions, and before the relocation of Nippon-Ham to Hokkaido and the establishment of the Rakuten baseball team, it was hosted all over the country, mainly in eastern Japan and Hokuriku, from Hokkaido in the north to Kagoshima in the south. I played a match.

When the team was foundedthe 1950sWas held mainly in other stadiums in Hiroshima prefecture, as well as in the Chugoku region such as Okayama prefecture, Yamaguchi prefecture, and Shimane prefecture.the 1980sからthe 1990sIn the meantime, it was held in a wide range of regions, such as hosting games in all six prefectures in Hokkaido and Tohoku.After thatthe 2000sIn addition to the Tohoku region, we also played sponsored games in Nagano and, if anything, in the three Hokuriku prefectures of Kanazawa, Toyama, and Fukui, which are the territories of Chunichi.For this reason, he was the main player at that time.Tomonori KanemotoThere is also an episode that he hit a home run at 2 stadiums, which is the second highest tie in history, including the Hanshin Tigers era when he was active and later transferred.

However, since the mid-2000s, the number of games hosted in rural areas has decreased significantly, and since 2009 when the base moved to the current MAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium Hiroshima, it was held in Chubu and Hokuriku except for a few.three times,KureIt has come to be almost limited to holding at stadiums in Hiroshima prefecture.In particularHiroki KurodaAfter returning to Hiroshima, it became difficult to obtain tickets for the base, so the number of local events was limited to 1-2 games a year, which was also Miyoshi, Kure,OnomichiIt came to be limited to any stadium in Hiroshima prefecture. 2020New coronavirus infectionDue to the expansion, the opening was postponed to June and the number of games was shortened, so no regional holdings were held, and all 6 games hosted were held at MAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium Hiroshima.[193].. It has not been held locally since 2021.[194][195].

Incidentally,Second armyRegarding, in 2021Hirosaki Sports Park Baseball FieldInterleague play (against)Tokyo Yakult) It has been held in some regions, such as two games were scheduled to be held, but this 2HirosakiAll matches were canceled due to concerns about the spread of the new coronavirus infection[196].

8 samurai

Before the opening of 1951, the idea of ​​"Hiroshima Carp dissolution" emerged in the Central League.The management of the Hiroshima baseball team has reached the limit where even the monthly salary of the players cannot be paid on a regular basis, the reinforcement measures are not in place and the lowest rank is decisive as in the previous year, and Carp who has those problems is the Central League. The main reason was that it could damage the league's reputation.The bill was expected to be passed at the Central League board meeting held on March 3 of the same year.At the brink of merger with Taiyo Whales, which was based in Shimonoseki at that time, or dissolution, the Hiroshima baseball team asked all companies to invest, but it did not come to fruition.

XNUM X Month X NUM X Day,NHK Hiroshima Broadcasting StationReported "Carp dissolution".Eight carp fans who heard the news of the dissolution gathered spontaneously, and the signatures of the main players such as Katsumi Shiraishi and the message of "Winning Hiroshima Carp" were written.batWith the prefectural office,municipal office, Hiroshima Electric Railway,Chamber of commerce, Boarded the Chugoku Shimbun and negotiated support for Carp.The actions of these eight unnamed fans showed how much Carp was loved by the citizens, and received assistance from many Hiroshima companies, Hiroshima citizens and prefectural citizens.A barrel was placed in front of the stadium to call for widespread help.With the support represented by this "barrel donation", the management showed some improvement, and the crisis of team merger and dissolution was avoided.

Alleged home run

April 1953, 4, Onomichi Nishi High School (currentlyOnomichi Commercial High School) Opened in the schoolyardYomatsu robinsIn the third round[191], 4 times HiroshimaKatsumi ShiraishiThe hit ball released by the player became a home run that jumped into the middle right, but over this play YomatsuTokuro KonishiThe director disagreed and demanded the referee to rehash[12][197]..As mentioned above, there is an agreement that if you go over the territory of the outfield fence from the game in Miyoshi, you will hit a home run, and if you go under it, you will hit a double. It was in a state of being.Therefore, he protested "I think he pushed the rope forward on purpose" from the desire of the fans, "I want to win Hiroshima, I want to give points to the players in Hiroshima".Until then, when Robins's hit ball flew into the outfield, Carp fans gave him a rope at the highest, and when Carp's hit ball flew into the outfield, he lowered the rope, so Director Konishi was also angry.[191].

At that time, there were few standard venues in Hiroshima prefecture where official games could be held, so it was not uncommon for games to be held at schools or corporate grounds.FukuyamaMitsubishi ElectricGround orOtakePolice schoolIt is also held on the ground.

Only 11 days later, on April 4, there was a happening in which fans broke into the ground over the home run of Yomatsu with the same card set in Hiroshima General Stadium, and assaulted Director Konishi and the referee.[12][191]..On this day, Carp lost 2–4 in the first match.In the second game, Carp lead in the top of the eighth inning until the end, Yomatsu'sShoji ArakawaPuts two runners andYoshio OtagakiWhen Carp suffered a reverse defeat by shooting a reverse three-run that hits the fastball directly on the left pole, the fan said, "Because there is such a thing, Carp will lose."Left wing poleThere was also a rare event of pulling out[12][191][26]..There are three distant causes for this turmoil, Arakawa made a gesture to make fun of Carp fans who make noise at the stand saying "Hey, Sammer Miro !!"gestureThen, when Arakawa went around the second base, he showed the sign of a home run again, and it looked like a judge's correction from the fans' point of view, and Carp's director Shuichi Ishimoto explained the situation through the microphone to convince the fans who started making noise. However, he said something vague, such as "I don't think so, but the base judge is a home run", so he anointed the excited fans.After the match, a murderous fan broke into the ground due to an avalanche and assaulted base referee Taniguchi and referee Sugimura.Over a dozen fans pulled out the long left-wing pole, took the pole to the tool yard where the referees escaped, and shouted, "Judge, where did you hit this pole! No !!" I tried to break through the door[26]..Asahi Shimbun reporter Kioto Shioguchi took a picture of the rampaging Carp fan from one end, and the next day Asahi Shimbun raised this case to the top of the social aspect,Weekly AsahiAnd 'Asahi GraphWas also taken up greatly[191]..Eventually, the referees were canned until night, and the police were dispatched.[12].

After the Onomichi incident, the federation issued an instruction that "the fences in the inner and outer fields should not use ropes. Install some kind of fence."Otake City OfSelf-Defense Forces training groundIn the second round of the Giants held in April 4th, a fence was suddenly made with a fence that was poured with cement when building a reinforced concrete building.[191].

Phantom home run

Held at Hanshin Koshien Stadium on September 2015, 9Hanshin TigersIn the battle, in the 12th inning, from 1 dead runner to HiroshimaHirosuke TanakaThe hit ball bounced off with a wire stretched on the stand side of the left middle fence and tumbled around the outfield.Tanaka stopped at third base, but the bench on the Hiroshima side appealed for a home run.The referees decided that the ball was in play that bounced on the ground side of the fence in consultation by video judgment, and made a triple.Subsequent batters retired and ended in a 2-2 draw.

After the match, Carp sent a protest letter to both the NPB and Central League secretariats, admitting that the NPB had once crossed the fence but made no records or corrections to the results.Hiroshima finished the season with 69 wins, 71 losses and 3 draws, and missed the climax series with the 3th place behind the 0.5rd place Hanshin by 4 games.If you win this match, Hiroshima will be 70 wins, 71 losses and 2 draws (win rate .496), and Hanshin will be 70 wins, 72 losses and 1 draw (win rate .493), and Hiroshima will be in 3rd place. It was.

In addition, since 2015 ended in B class, there was originally no opening right for 2017, but since Hanshin in 3rd place returned, 2017 will be the opening game at Mazda Stadium.

The first professional baseball player from Okinawa

Joined in 1964Anachiya SohachiAt that timeOkinawa Prefecture under American occupationI'm fromOkinawa High School (currently Okinawa Shogaku High School)Joined Carp via Ryukyu Cigarette,OkinawaBecame the first professional baseball player.Only 3 wins that year, but then joinedTokiba YoshiroAt the same time, he played an active part as an ace pitcher representing Carp, and left a total of 119 wins and 124 losses. In 1975Hanshin TigersCarp's first victory in the team was watched over as an enemy team, but he returned in 1980 and became a member of the team's first consecutive victory and Japan's consecutive victory. In 2005, he returned as a pitcher coach and stored a white beard.Santa ClausIn addition to the appearance like, the uniform color of the team was red and white, so "Aniya SantaIt was also called "" and attracted attention.Although he established the "Aniya style" such as harsh running and throwing, the pitcher kingdom did not revive and he was withdrawn for that year.

"Meeting to win Carp"

In 1966TokyoLive inHiroshimaCelebrity volunteers said "Carp victory party”Was established.The founder is a writer from Hiroshima prefecture who edited and published the hobby magazine "Sake" in Tokyo.Hisako Sasakiwas.To this inaugurationKiyuki Kajiyama,Miyuki Ishimoto,Kento Shindo,Hirotatsu Fujiwara,Kimura Isao,Haruko Sugimura,Yoko MorishitaThere is a connection between people from Hiroshima and Hiroshima and Carp playersKatsuhiko Haita,Ichiro Tominaga, Other,Anti giantWas famous forSoichi OyaWas a drinking friend of KajiyamaShigekazu TanabeParticipated[198]..According to Sasaki, Tokyo was tired of being full of giant fans, and Hiroshima at that time was naturally in the bottom or fifth place, and at best it was weak enough to be expected to win the B class, so "the sun rises from the west. Even if there was, Carp would never win the A class, and he would never enter the A class !! " "If nothing is done, the Tokyo complex will be terrible. To get rid of it, let's support the local flower, Carp, to win the championship!"However, although it is good to have started it, it was the first time that he emerged in the A class (5rd place) two years later (2), and Sasaki's cry "Carp wins, giant is the lowest" is painful. I could hear it.But the 1968 team was the firstCentral LeagueWith the added bonus of winning the championship and achieving the first lowest rank of the giant, it was the giant's hometown that was decided to win.Korakuenwas[199].

In this way, the "Carp Winners' Association" was disbanded in 1975, but it was immediately sluggish.If this is not the case, Sasaki launched the "Meeting to Win Carp Again" in 1978.Then, in 1979, the team achieved the first number in Japan for the first time, and in 1980, the first in the Central League other than the Giants, the first in Japan for two consecutive years.

In Japan, the subordinate organization was only the domestic second army until then, but there are many difficulties due to budget problems due to the team acquiring first-class players who are active in MLB etc., and the decrease in strength with purely domestic batting. In response to the concern, pay attention to the above MLB academy system. The first academy in the history of the Japanese sphere in 1990,Carp AcademyWas opened in the Dominican Republic, with the goal of "sending to Japan five years after its opening."As a result in 5Czech RepublicThe pitcher has registered as the first active player from the academy.Since thenPerez,Soriano,PerdomoThey came to Japan from the academy and played in the official game.In addition, although he did not participate in the official competition, a player from the academy was registered under control in 1992.

Man with uniform number 0

1983 years,Kiyoyuki Nagashima Uniform numberI participated in the official game with 0.There was a case where a bullpen catcher who did not participate in the official game attached it to the uniform number 0 in the early postwar period, but it was the first time in the history of Nippon Professional Baseball among the official game participants.This Nagashima played all the games and became a regular, so the uniform number 0 spread to other teams.[Note 47].

Increase in carp fans outside Hiroshima prefecture

In 1993, the ball worldFree agent, In draftReverse nominationHiroshima, which lacks financial resources, suffered from the outflow of its mainstay and the acquisition of influential newcomers due to the introduction of both systems, allowing players to choose their affiliation, and it was sluggish for a long time, but in 2013 it was the first time in 16 years. By entering the A class, the wind direction changed.Rather than relying on reinforcement like giants, Hanshin, and Softbank, steadily train young young playersClimax seriesThe first entry into the market has struck a chord with the public.Hajime Matsuda analyzed that he agrees with the team's idea of ​​raising young players and winning a strong team.[245].
