On Saturday, August 19th, 2017, join the Powell Street Festival Society, Carnegie Community Centre, and the Japanese Canadian Young Leaders of Vancouver at Oppenheimer Park for the 12th Annual Vancouver Asahi Tribute Game!
The Vancouver Asahi were a Japanese Canadian baseball team that played in the Powell Street area, a historically Japanese Canadian community, from 1914 to 1941. Their home field was Oppenheimer Park.
We play baseball in recognition of the Vancouver Asahi for their contribution to the sport of baseball (the team was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003 and the BC Sports Hall of Fame in 2005), and for their place in and impact on the history of Canada, human and citizenship rights, and community-building.
The 12th Annual Vancouver Asahi Tribute Game is a free, inclusive, and family-friendly place to play ball, eat hot dogs, and come together for some summer fun!
