Stamp: Canada Post - ASAHI BASEBALL - First Day Cover; FDC Issue Date: April 25, 2019 Scott #: # Denomination: 1 * $0.90 (Permanent Rate) Type of Stamp: First Day Cover Other Info Pay tribute to the remarkable legacy and incredible achievements of the Vancouver Asahi baseball team with this booklet of 10 PermanentTM domestic stamps. These baseball-shaped stamps honour the famous Japanese-Canadian team that won multiple amateur championships. Among those featured in the photograph on the stamp is Kaye Kaminishi, the last living Vancouver Asahi player (back row, second from left). The Asahi story is about more than baseball; it is about ganbare, the team’s determination to overcome racism and discrimination without retaliation. Formed in 1914, a time of overt prejudice, the Asahi quickly became one of Vancouver’s most dominant amateur teams. They thrilled fans and outwitted opponents using a strategy dubbed “brain ball,” a unique combination of bunt hits and aggressive base running. Regrettably, the team was forced to disband following Canada’s declaration of war on Japan and more than 20,000 people of Japanese ancestry were interned, many of them Canadian citizens. The Vancouver Asahi were inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003 and the British Columbia Sports Hall of Fame in 2005. ISSUE DATE: April 25, 2019 STAMP DESIGNER: Subplot Design Inc.
