Shigakkan University has decided to split their co-ed baseball team into men's and women's teams and have them complete separately. The university was originally an all women's university until 2007. The baseball team originally got it's start back in 2005 as an all-women's team and joined the Aichi University Baseball League (AUBL). When the university was opened up to men, so was the team.
This past spring, an all-men's baseball team competed in the AUBL and did well enough to move up to the third division.
The all-men's team will continue to compete in the AUBL while the all-women's team will compete in various other women's only tournament.
