Baseball was introduced to Japan by an American man, Horace Wilson, in 1872 who was an English professor at Tokyo’s Kaisei Academy at the time. In 1878, the first baseball team, Shinbashi Athletic Club was established.
In Japanese, baseball is known as Yakyu (野球) which is a combination of “field” and “ball” in kanji. Professional Baseball in Japan started out in the 1920’s with the first Japanese professional league starting in 1936.
