The Asahi Nine: Japanese American Baseball In San José
Tuesday, Aug 13 @ 1:00pm
By the 1920s, Japanese baseball leagues stretched across the west coast from Seattle to Los Angeles. More than just a game, baseball provided a bridge between generations, communities, and cultures. San José’s Japanese-American Asahi baseball team, established in 1913, was among the first of its kind. This exhibit features memorabilia from local Japanese American baseball teams, including photos, awards, uniforms, equipment, signed baseballs from internment camps, and more! Check out the blog!
