This minor planet is named after Sadaharu Oh (1940 — present), a Japanese baseball player. He played with the Yomiuri Giants from 1959 to 1980, later getting inducted into the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame, and went on to manage a few teams. He is notable for having the world lifetime home run record, with 868 during his career.

The symbol of this minor planet is a small baseball, represented as a circle with curves on the left and right as the stitching, with an upward arrow above it, representing a home run. His surname 王 (Oh/Wang) is overlaid on the arrow, as three short horizontal lines.
