Hiroshima Toyo Carp – Yakult Swallows Match Prediction | 05-09-2019 05:00

The team colors are red and dark blue. The mascot character is Slyly who loves entertaining. Slyly likes pulling pranks, dancing, and being mischievous. The team has won the Central League championship 9 times, and has also won the Nippon Series 3 times. The Hiroshima Castle is called Rijo which means Carp Castle. The present home field, MAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium, was completed in 2009. The symbol mark of the team is the so-called Carp Boya meaning Carp boy. Also, the Otagawa River flowing through Hiroshima City is famous for the speciality of carp. The Hiroshima Toyo Carp team was established in 1949 and belongs to the Central League. It has an open infield and outfield with natural grass which is rare in Japan. The carp was selected as the symbol of the team for various reasons.

The company was renamed Mazda Motor Corporation in 1984, but the Toyo name remains memorialized in the name of the baseball team. In 1968, the Toyo Kogyo company became the team's chief sponsor, and the company name was inserted to become the Hiroshima Toyo Carp. The team ended the season above 3rd place for the first time the year corporate sponsorship started, but fell back into last place from 1972 to 1974.

A month into the season, Lutz and the Carp parted ways after a dispute with the front office. The team hired its first non-Japanese manager, Joe Lutz, in 1975[1], becoming the first Japanese professional team to hire a foreign manager. Lutz ordered the team's cap to be changed to red to symbolize a never-ending fighting spirit[citation needed], and he hired Gail Hopkins and Richie Scheinblum. Whether he was fired, or quit is not clear.[2] However, the team won its first ever league championship in 1975 to begin a memorable series of seasons.

The team has never signed any free agents, and is often forced to let go of star players because they can no longer pay their salaries (recent examples include Tomoaki Kanemoto, Akira Etoh, Andy Sheets, Nate Minchey, John Bale, Greg LaRocca and Takahiro Arai). One of the major reasons for the team's recent demise[clarification needed] is the lack of financial support it receives from its sponsors. The Hiroshima Carp was the last Japanese team to have a non-Japanese player on its roster (excluding Japanese-Americans). Zoilo Versalles, the 1965 American League MVP, was the first non-Japanese player to play for the Carp.

This agreement may have targeted the Carp, since the team had been in last place every season. The Shochiku Robins ended the season in last place with a .288 winning percentage, and was merged with the Taiyo Whales. The Central League had seven teams in 1952, making it complicated to form a coherent schedule for each team. The team won only 37 games in 1952, but ended with a .316 winning percentage, saving itself from being disbanded. Therefore, it was decided that any team that ended the season with a winning percentage below .300 would be disbanded or merged with another team.
