10th Annual Asahi Tribute Game: Recap

The 10th Annual Asahi Tribute Game was a hit! It was a great day of communities coming together to play a fun game and recognize the impact of a legendary baseball team. The credit goes to Kayla Isomura for capturing the spirit of the day. Check out the event photos on Flickr or Facebook!
