Back in 1942, the United States was at war with Japan.  Afraid of having spies living in our country, the government made a bold decision.  All Japanese Americans were moved from the west coast and relocated to internment camps.  The camps were not a great place to live.  The camps were crowded and the people had very little to do.  The children started disrespecting their elders and everyone was on edge.  What they needed was someway to keep busy and have some fun.  Maybe baseball would be the answer.
