Now every yearMay 2To startOctoberLate orOctoberIt is generally done until the beginning.Previously, there was a special case for teams camping outside JapanOctoberIt was possible to set up a camp from the end of the year, but now, based on the agreement (baseball agreement) [Chapter 17 Match] "Article 173 Postseason", team practice and external matches are held (from December 12 of the previous year). ) Since it is banned until January 1, team practice will be lifted on February 1.It is not always necessary to start in step with each other, but it is customary for 31 teams to start all at once from the same day.However,Hokkaido Nippon-Ham FightersFrom 2016 to 2020AmericaArizonaThe primary camp will be set up in Japan, but due to the time difference, it will start before February 2st, Japan time.AmericaMajor LeagueThen,spring training It corresponds to the practice called.

In the spring camp, a schedule is set up with 4-5 days as 1 course (3 shifts, 1 break, 4 shifts, 1 break, etc. The unit of practice period divided by rest days is called "cool"). In early February, we mainly perform running, stretching exercises, catch ball, knocking, etc. to build basic physical strength and relax the body.From the middle to the end of the year, we will provide a practical curriculum for long-distance running, defense, pitching, and batting, and seat batting.Red and white battlePractice match with other teams[1]Etc. are also held at this time.And from the endOpen battleFinally showed the result in late MarchOpenerIt is in the form of competing for participation slots.In the case of Major League Baseball, unlike Japan, after completing the physical training at the stage of self-training until mid-February, practical practice will be started immediately around the end of February.However, the gathering at the campsite is not done all at once as in Japan, but is divided into pitchers and fielders.

At the autumn camp, each team will provide basic training mainly for young players to prepare for the next season, but other teams will be trained.Free contractThere is also a case where an enrollment test is conducted for the players who have become.Veteran athletes who played an active part in the season often devote the autumn camp period to rest.The run was in 1979Hell's Ito CampIt is said that.

As a kind of camp, there is a "joint voluntary training" where players gather together.In many cases, the player's hometown or facilities near the base of the team are used.In addition, in January, the "Rookie Joint Voluntary Training" held only by the rookie, the "Player Meeting Voluntary Training" held by the players'association of each team, and the players of the same high school / university seniors and juniors are the team's In some cases, we go beyond the barriers and work together on the grounds of our alma mater.After the beginning of the year, when the third day is over, the "newcomer joint voluntary training" will begin, and the rookie and the main players will meet for the first time at the "players' meeting joint voluntary training" where the main players who have completed the voluntary training in various places will gather.Voluntary training can be broadly divided into cases in which the main players of the team invite young players, and cases in which close players and players from the same place of origin gather together.Especially in the latter case, players from multiple teams may gather, and it is also a place for technical exchange between players beyond the teams.

In addition, for new players, it is customary to conduct joint voluntary training at the facilities of each baseball stadium (baseball stadium, 2 military training stadium, etc.).Saitama Seibu LionsThen new players approachSeibuen Bicycle RacetrackIn addition to the customary bicycle training atJapan Bicycle Player Training CenterThere are also teams that receive training for newcomers (also known as "bicycle race training").

In recent years, there is also a team where the best team in Japan from the previous year holds a victory parade at the campsite as a greeting and a report. As of 2012, Lotte had parades in Ishigaki City and Nippon Ham in Nago City in the past.[2].

The camp in Okinawa Prefecture was triggered by Nippon-Ham's 1979 Nago camp.1999 In 12 monthU.S. ForcesFutenma baseIn return for the decision to accept an alternative base in Nago City, the 12 local governments in the northern part of Okinawa Prefecture will receive 2000 billion yen every year for 10 years from 100, for a total of 1000 billion yen.Public worksIn the name of "Northern Special Promotion Project", national expenses flowed in, the stadium construction rush continued, and the facilities were improved, so professional baseball camps began to concentrate in Okinawa.[4].

Winter weather conditions are especially important when choosing a campsite. Currently, there are two prefectures, Okinawa, which has an average temperature of 15 degrees Celsius or higher and is the warmest in Japan, or Miyazaki, which is not as warm as Okinawa but has many sunny days. It is almost one of them, except for these two prefectures.Hanshin Tigers Second ArmySaitama Seibu LionsGroup B is only doing it in Kochi prefecture. In 2004Fukuoka Daiei HawksSaitama Seibu LionsHave moved their camps in Kochi prefecture to Miyazaki prefecture.In addition, the Hanshin Tigers camp is also in Kochi prefecture.Aki CityFrom the holding inOkinawaGinoza VillageIn recent years, there has been a tendency to concentrate on Okinawa, such as the fact that it will be held for the entire period from 2012, and currently 12 out of 9 domestic teams are camping in Okinawa Prefecture.[5].. The Yomiuri Giants, which had been camping only in Miyazaki Prefecture until 2010, moved the secondary campsite to Naha, where the major renovation of the stadium was completed, from 2011.By the way,Korean professional baseballBut some teams are camping in Okinawa.

In addition to practicing during the camp, you can also hold an instant autograph session while you are on the move, or at the campsite.MunicipalitiesIt is a precious thing that can not be done on a daily basis because players take various actions such as holding exchange meetings with citizens living in Japan, youth baseball classes, etc., and going out for city tours and golf for refreshment on holidays. It is also used as a place for contact (after 2020)CoronaThen refrain from doing so).

For this reason, many local governments are attracting camps, and there is a battle for attracting and pulling out camps among local governments, promising the development of various facilities.However, the scale of facilities required for professional baseball camps is as large as a public facility in a local city.OverspecIn many cases, it is often the case that the construction of a luxurious facility is offered as a condition (or the team balances the local government to draw out favorable conditions) in order to win the competition with other camp attraction sites.
