Hokusho High School officials informed the media on Friday that their baseball manager, Takaya Kawakami (55), slapped two of his players (on the head and cheek) during practices in early September. The incident was reported to school officials in October. The high school issued Kawakami a three-month general suspension and a one-year coaching suspension. Coach Akifumi Takeuchi will step in as interim manager. A report has already been filed with the Japan High School Baseball Federation.

[11/28/2014] Tie-Breaker rules to be implemented during high school spring regional tournaments

by on Nov.28, 2014 @ 7:32 pm, under High School

The Japan High School Baseball Federation (JHBF) held a board meeting in Osaka on Thursday and decided to implement tie-breaker rules during the spring regional tournaments next year. Details will be worked out during another meeting in January. Outcomes of the spring regional tournaments have no direct ties to the Spring and Summer Koshien tournaments.

Plans to slowly implement tie-breaker rules over time were considered during a technical committee meeting in October. The intial plan was to add tie-breaker rules to regional and prefectural tournaments during the spring that had no direct ties to the Spring and Summer Koshien tournaments. However, earlier this month, representatives from the nine regions and Tokyo met and could not agree to including tie-breaker rules in individual prefectural tournaments because of timing issues. Tie-breaker rules were implemented during Kanto and Hokushinetsu regional tournaments this year.

The Japan High School Baseball Federation chairman Takayasu Okushima (75) is planning to step down from his post after the 18U World Cup tournament next year. A replacement has not yet been selected.

Next year will be a milestone year: It will be 100 years since the first Summer Koshien tournament and the 18U World Cup tournament will be held in Japan for the first time. Okushima felt the time was right for him to step down.

Okushima replaced Haruo Wakimura as the sixth chairman of the Japan High School Baseball Federation in November 2008.

Note: Ninety-six Summer Koshien tournaments have been completed. Next year will be ninety-seven. No tournaments were schededule betweeen 1942 and 1945 because of the war. Two tournaments (1918 and 1941) were canceled due to the war, but are included in the ninety-six. The first tournament was played in 1915.
