  • en

Jun 202023
6:00p.m. - 7:00p.m.

Join Dodgers’ historian Mark Langill as he shares about the 1956 tour of Japan by the Brooklyn Dodgers which set the stage for many significant moments in baseball history that connected Japan and Los Angeles baseball, culminating in the signing of Hideo Nomo. 

Learn how the 1956 tour paved the way for visits by Tokyo Giants players in the following years to Dodgers’ Spring Training and by the Dodgers to Japan in the ’60s and ’90s, how dugout seats in the Korakuen Stadium in Tokyo influenced the original dugout seats in Dodger Stadium, and the Japanese lantern at Dodger Stadium. There will also be time for a Q&A with Langill and moderator Chris Komai.
