KINTON, JR, CEO AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 4/8/11 by Scd Giarratani I II First American to Play Baseball in Japan Dies The multi-sport athlete Wally Kaname Yonamine the first American to play professional baseball in Japan died at 85 years old. The outfielder who was known as "Nise] Jackie Robinson" for breaking into baseball in Japan following WWII helping to build impor- tant ties in the post-World War II era. He has been con- sidered one of the greatest athletes ever to come out of Hawaii. He also played foot- ball for the 49ers in 1947. three years before the team joined the NFL. When he signed a two- year deal to become the first player of Japanese ancestry to play pro ball, he was con- sidered an outsider. When released by the team, he eventually went to Japan and became an outsider again, but this time because he was American. He played in the Pacific Coast League before going to Japan In LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Suffolk Probate and Family Court 24 New Chardon Street P.O.

There• he played for the Yomiruri Giants and the Chunichi Dragons and helped make Japanese baseball more American- like. After Wally showed up there, the Japanese players started playing more aggres- sively and. more and more American ballplayers were hired for many Japanese teams. Yastrzemski Still Doing the "Capt. Carl" Thing Dan Shaughnessy did a Boston Globe piece about what Carl Yastrzemski was up to now-adays. In the story, it was relayed that he doesn't want to be around all those baby boomer fans like myself that he thrilled years ago, All I can say is the feel- ing is mutual. He was a great ballplayer, but like Ted Williams, his personality #S%l\@&. I remember the big role he played as a member of the Cardiac Kids back during the 1967 Impossible Dream year when the Red Sox fi- nally won a pennant. Up to 1967, the Sox were a lous,, team, which explained the empty seats at Fenway. Shaughnessy showed Yaz a Sports Illustrated cover of him back in 1967 with him at bat and Tony Conigliaro in the on deck circle and Yaz laments, "Every time 1 see this picture, I can't believe how many years Tony C's been gone. That's Tony in the on-deck circle. This picture was taken about a week before he got hit. He had that great swing. In '67, he was just coming into his own. Defen- sively, throwing, catching, running. He would have been something." Yaz's comments on Tony Conigliaro were most appre- ciated because baseball lost a truly future Hall of Famer and possibly all-time home run king on a night back in August 1967 when Tony C. nearly died at home plate. The dream of baseball great- ness really ended that night and we will never know how great Tony C. could have been! Yastrzemski had a great career with the Sox from re- placing Teddy Baseball in left field in April 1961 until his retirement at the end of the 1983 season. However, I remember more about the lost possibilities of Conigliaro than the accomplishments of Carl Yastrzemski and that's truly sad, isn't it?
