Author Samuel Regalado will talk about his book and the history and importance of baseball in the Japanese American community. In the book, he explores key historical factors such as Meji-era modernization policies in Japan, American anti-Asian sentiments, internment during WWII, the postwar transition, economic and educational opportunities in the 1960s, the developing concept of a distinct “Asian American” identity, and Japanese Americans’ rise to the major leagues with star players including Lenn Sakata and Kurt Suzuki and even mangers such as the Seattle Mariners’ Don Wakamatsu.

In conjunction with the exhibition Dodgers: Brotherhood of the Game
