Botchan Stadium is a baseball stadium named after Natsume Soseki’s novel “Botchan” where professional baseball all-star games have been held twice in the past. Masaoka Shiki, a haiku poet from Matsuyama, was interested in baseball and is known for translating English baseball terms into Japanese. Since high school baseball is popular in Ehime Prefecture, an exhibition corner “No Ball Museum” introducing the history of baseball in Ehime Prefecture is set up beside the front entrance of the main stadium. The name “No Ball” is a reference to Shiki’s childhood name, “Noboru”.
