Infant Ruth, Lou Gehrig as well as Japanese American Baseball all-stars playing with each other in Fresno, CA at Fireman’s Ballpark. Just on-field 16mm video taken during the 8 city trip. The Nisei were on Gehrig’s team and also beat Babe Ruth’s 13–3. Taizo Toshiyuki shot these ballplayers on October 29, 1927. Via the spirit of Gail Zenimura Dunn’s passing, we got the reel and also digitized it to this format. Team image consists of (Lt to Rt ), Johnny Nakagawa, Lou Gehrig, Kenichi Zenimura, Infant Ruth, Fred Yoshikawa as well as Harvey Iwata. (Thanks to Taizo Toshiyuki family members, Frank Kamiyama digital photographer and also NBRP ).
