Sport museum that exhibits highlights of Japanese baseball

If you visit The Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, you can know the world of Japanese baseball.

It is enjoyable to see the comprehensive display about the history of Japanese baseball. In 2014, after stepping down a stair from the front desk around the 21st gate at Tokyo Dome, Orix, Mariners and Yankees uniforms of Mr. Ichiro Suzuki (1973-Present), and memorial balls of Mr. Masahiro Tanaka (1988-Present) including the ball with his autograph when he achieved 16 consecutive wins from the start of the 2013 season were displayed. It was also possible to find the uniform of Mr. Shinnosuke Abe (1979-Present), a superstar catcher of Yomiuri Giants and the card for autograph by Mr. Senichi Hoshino (1947-Present), a field manager of Rakuten Golden Eagles at the corner of 12 Japanese professional baseball teams.

At the corner of the history of Japanese baseball, you can see the displays about Mr. Masaichi Kaneda (1933-Present) who has the record of the total number of winning, Mr. Sadaharu Oh (1940-Present) who has the record of home runs, Mr. Sachio Kinugasa (1947-Present) who has the record of consecutive number of playing games, and Mr. Yutaka Fukumoto (1947-Present) who has the record of stolen bases. It is also great to see the memorial ball, uniform and golden bat of Mr. Shigeo Nagashima (1936-Present) for Prople's Honor Award with Mr. Hideki Matsui (1974-Present).

Moreover, there are corners about The Olympic Games, World Baseball Classic and hall of fame. It is wonderful to sit the seat and ride a bullpen car at Korakuen Stadium that were replaced by Tokyo Dome.

At Special Exhibition "Bats of Excellent Players" (from February 4, 2014 (Tuesday) to May 18. 2014 (Sunday)), it was possible to see the long bat called "Monohoshizao" used by Tomio Fujimura (1916-1992), the blue bat used by Hiroshi Oshita (1922-1979) and the red bat used by Tetsuharu Kawakami (1920-2013). It was interesting to see that the length of the bat used by Tomio Fujimura is 92.5cm long and the diameter the red bat used by Tetsuharu Kawakami is 5.9cm. The shape of bats was different from each other. In particular, it was impressive to see that the shape of 2 bats used by Mr. Seiichi Uchikawa (1982-Present) were different.

It opened in 1959. It is a middle-sized private museum at Tokyo Dome City in Suidobashi, Bunkyo City, Tokyo. Its nearest station is Suidobashi Station and so on.
