The Shikoku Island League Plus was established in 2005 and is one of two professional independent baseball leagues in Japan. We are one of the four teams who participate in this league.
The purpose of this league is to cooperate and build strong ties with Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) and other regional baseball teams in order to:
-raise players’ motivation and skill level by giving them opportunities to play against NPB teams and advance to a higher level
-increase the support from fans and give them opportunities to watch NPB teams play in their local stadiums
-raise children’s interest in baseball and also create an enthusiastic sports environment around Shikoku
We are also involved in many different activities, both locally and internationally. This involvement is seen as the beginning of greater things to come!
The future vision of our team includes building and sustaining significant international relationships to an even greater degree with people and organizations throughout the world to promote cross-cultural exchanges through sports.
