Year by year it grew in popularity across all the schools and universities throughout the country, and since the beginning of the 20th century prestigious academies like Waseda or Keio sent their teams to the USA to learn the secrets of the best players, using them in the college leagues. Anyway, it’s only in 1936 that the Nippon Professional Baseball has been established.
