    A baseball history museum is located at the front entrance of Botchan Stadium. Shiki Masaoka, a haiku poet born in Matsuyama, was an avid baseball enthusiast, and also gave a Japanese name to the sport. He called it “No-ball (Baseball)” after his given name “Noboru.” The museum is named after Shiki, who is said to have brought baseball to Ehime, and the “No-Ball Museum” shows the baseball history of Ehime and Matsuyama from its first days to the present in the “Amateur Baseball Exhibit” and “Professional Baseball Exhibit.”
    Features available for visitors to view include high school baseball video highlights and materials from the past three professional baseball all-star games held in Matsuyama — the most of any local stadium.
