“There was strong anti-American feeling throughout Japan, but then Babe Ruth smacked a home run…all the ill feeling and underground war sentiment vanished just like that.” -Connie Mack, on Babe Ruth’s 1934 visit to Japan
Long an American baseball icon who was larger than life, Babe Ruth went to Japan in 1934, where he played in an 18-game tour, smacked 13 home runs, and won over a nation. Not only was Ruth an ambassador for baseball, he was an ambassador of good will, waving the American and Japanese flags freely at each stop.
