Translated by Masaki Watanabe

Norio Goto’s exhaustively-researched book captures the development of the team from their early struggles, to their ascension as fan favourites, to becoming league champions, and ultimately to the internment years and beyond. Goto also provides a window into baseball as it developed in Japan, and the crossover between teams from both Japan and North America.

First published in Japan in 2010.
