This was an epic event for Japan, when a traveling team of U.S. stars--including Ruth and Gehrig--barnstormed there, with footage shot by the great Jimmie Foxx! I've known about this for a decades, as a fan of Japanese (and U.S.) baseball. Love the shots of future spy, Moe Berg.
Footage recently found at the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. And don't miss, see my collection of vintage baseball cards--from years before that.
