We are pleased to share this brand new Heritage Minute by Historica Canada about the Vancouver Asahi baseball team! Our Collections Manager, Lisa Uyeda and Research Archivist, Linda Kawamoto Reid served as consultants on the making of this Minute. Visit nikkeimuseum.org to view Kaye Kaminishi's original Asahi jersey, and explore our online museum collection database. The team at Historica Canada and Point Blank Creative based the replica Asahi uniforms on the original in our collection.
If you are interested in sporting Vancouver Asahi regalia, visit our Museum Shop (Tues - Sat 9:30am-5pm) or shop online for Asahi ball caps & shirts! Thanks to Nine O'Clock Gun for creating these specialty Vancouver Asahi hats!
