    Does anyone know the name of all 21 U.S.A. universities that traveled to and played in Japan against waseda and Keio during the years between 1908 and 1930? I know Washington was the 1st and that Chicago went in 1910 and every five years thereafter but can't find info on the other 19. Thanks!

    Any chance of reposting the images from the 1934 series?

    I know this thread is five years old, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me which of the five players in the upper photo is which, and specifically, which one is Fukuzo Tada? I've been trying to find a photo of him, without success. Tada had an interesting career - he started out as a pitcher, was converted into a catcher for a few years, then converted back to pitcher, with some success (he was 14-9 in 1949, the year pictured). Then at the end of his career, he went back to being a catcher for two years, hitting .217 with five home runs in 1954! I don't know of any other player, anywhere, who had that career path...
