About the Author

While coaching his son's little league team in Fresno, California, Kerry Yo Nakagawa was inspired to preserve the legacy of Japanese American baseball and culture for future generations, and that evolved into a full-time non-profit project, the Nisei Baseball Research Project (NBRP), and the previous version of this updated book. The NBRP exhibit Diamonds in the Rough" has been shown in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, and the Japan Baseball Hall of Fame in Tokyo. In twenty major league seasons, Fresno, California native Tom Seaver won 311 games, struck out 3, 640 batters and compiled an earned run average of 2.86. He won the Rookie of the Year Award in 1967 and three Cy Young Awards (1969, 1973 and 1975), all with the New York Mets. He was 25, 7 for the '69 World Series-winning "Amazin' Mets." He also pitched for the Cincinnati Reds, Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox, and was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992. An actor of Japanese American ancestry born in 1932 in Isleton, California, Pat Morita's formative years were spent in a World War II, era internment camp. He was the first American of Asian descent to be nominated for an acting Academy Award, for his performance as Mr. Miyagi in "The Karate Kid" (1984). He was a regular on the television series "Sanford and Son, " "Happy Days, " "Ohara" and other shows. He wrote the preface for the original 2001 edition of this book. Morita passed away in 2005." --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
