[12/27/2014] Updates: Toyota Otani, Ota Daiichi, Coaching License Workshops

Former Toyota Otani High School baseball manager Takashi Kawakami (34) is standing trial for acts of physical violence against a player on his team. The first trial took place on the 24th at the Okazaki Branch of the Nagoya District Court. Kawakami admitted to a portion of the charges, but pleaded not guilty because he felt it was unavoidable and because he felt he committed no crime.

The prosecution claimed Kawakami got upset and struck a player that was doubled over because he was feeling sick. Lawyers argued that the manager did what he did because he felt the player was being disobedient and because parents looked to him to be strict.

Ota Daiichi High School (Ibaraki) officials are investigating claims that its manager might be going too far by punishing players by forcing them to sit with their legs folded underneath them for long periods of time. According to school officials, in early August, the manager had one second-year player sit with his legs folded underneath him for about forty minutes while grilling him about the cause of an error during a practice game.

A parent contacted the Board of Education and requested an investigation into improper coaching methods. A survey was handed out to first- and second-year players and a number indicated that they were hurt by words used by the manager.

The school has informed the manager not to attend practices for the time being. The Ibaraki High School Baseball Federation has been contacted. The school is planning to provide parents with an explanation on the 28th. The Board of Education will make a decision on the manager based on reports provided by the high school.

[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
Tags:

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.
