Banzai Babe Ruth: Baseball, Espionage, and Assassination during the 1934 Tour of Japan
Banzai Babe Ruth: Baseball, Espionage, and Assassination during the 1934 Tour of Japan
In November 1934 as the United States and Japan drifted toward war, a team of American League all-stars that included Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, future secret agent Moe Berg, and Connie Mack barnstormed across the Land of the Rising Sun. Hundreds of thousands of fans, many waving Japanese and American flags, welcomed the team with shouts of Banzai! Banzai Babe Ruth! The all-stars stayed for a month, playing 18 games, spawning professional baseball in Japan, and spreading goodwill.

Politicians on both sides of the Pacific hoped that the amity generated by the tour and the two nations shared love of the game could help heal their growing political differences. But the Babe and baseball could not overcome Japan s growing nationalism, as a bloody coup d A?A©tat by young army officers and an assassination attempt by the ultranationalist War Gods Society jeopardized the tour s success. A tale of international intrigue, espionage, attempted murder, and, of course, baseball, Banzai Babe Ruth is the first detailed account of the doomed attempt to reconcile the United States and Japan through the 1934 All American baseball tour. Robert K. Fitts provides a wonderful story about baseball, nationalism, and American and Japanese cultural history.

Babe Ruth

Babe Ruth
Babe Ruth’s name is immortalized in baseball history as the most prolific home run hitter of his time.
He hit 60 homers in the 1927 season during a 154-game stretch. This record stood until 1961, when Roger Maris hit 61 home runs in an extended 162 game schedule. Ford Frick, the Baseball Commissioner at the time determined that Maris’ record would enter the record books with an asterisk indicating the difference in the game schedule.
Barry Bonds may knock him off the king spot as career homer king, but his record .690 lifetime slugging percentage will probably never be bettered. A great personality reflected by the names writer’s gave him like “The Great Bambino” and “The Sultan of Swat.”

These lots are baseball only. These were owned by a collector and were stored appropriately in baseball card storage boxes so they are in great shape. Very good to like new. Since I know almost nothing about baseball I am putting what I can fit into a medium priority mailing box and selling them in lots. There are all brands and all kinds of baseball cards included. They range from 1987 to 1994 with some occasional 70’s. I will try to do a good mix with different varieties in each box. I have seen every name I know in baseball included in these cards. Most of these cards are probably common but there could be some good ones. At a little more than a penny a card they would make a great beginning collection or add ons for any collector. Here is what may be included and the types of cards I have: Donruss Upper Deck Topps Fleer Score Bowman O Pee Chee Rookie Cards All Star Cards Doubles Team Cards Manager Cards Babe Ruth Company Ted Williams Company Stadium Cards Coming Attractions Checklists Record Breakers Draft picks The Conlon Collection The Baseball Archives Autographed (Probably copied)
