A tribute to the 1914 Asahi Baseball team.
Black wool, stretch fitted
The Vancouver Asahi were a legendary Japanese-Canadian baseball team who played from 1914-1941. The Asahi home field was in downtown Vancouver at Oppenheimer Park (Powell Street Grounds).
The Asahi's story is kept alive by the Japanese community and the Nikkei Museum in Burnaby.
The last living Asahi player is Kaye Kaminishi - we have been very lucky to meet him two times at our events.
