Incredible 1949 photograph of the stars of Japanese baseball as they are mobbed for autographs by young fans at the ballpark. Issued only four years after the end of WWII, this is a poignant image of the game helping to heal a country. Issued by the International News and with a Spanish language paper caption on the back, this is one of the best images of Japanese baseball we have ever seen!
