1934 All American Asian Tour

by Patrick Newman (Nov 5, 2009)

Little-known fictitious fact: today, November 5, is the date in 1955 that Marty McFly travelled back to. So with today being a footnote in fictitious history, I thought it was a good time for a post on some real history.

Rob Fitts, author of Remembering Japanese Baseball and Wally Yonamine's biography, has just kicked off a new project, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the tour that brought Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and American spy Moe Berg to Japan. Over the next month, Rob will be chronicling the all-star tour, day by day as it happened in 1934. I'm looking forward to the November 20th entry, which should cover Eiji Sawamura's famous performance against the American stars.
