Championship Japanese Nine May Invade Soldiers Field in June--Harvard Won Close Game From Waseda in 1921


The championship baseball squad from Waseda University of Tokyo, Japan, will again meet the University diamond team on its second invasion of the country within five years. The Japanese manager wrote requesting a game with the University and Major F. W. Moore '93 has set June 15 or 16 as tentative dates and also suggested that the team from the Orient schedule games with some other college in the vicinity of Boston.

The Crimson ball players won a close decision over the Waseda team on May 26, 1921, by a 6 to 5 score and the nine from the Orient will make a strong bid for a victory this year. The Japanese team will leave in two months and the trip will last well into next summer.

Waseda University was one of the first of Japanese institutions to take up baseball as a sport over 20 years ago. Since then this University has consistently turned out the best teams in the Japanese Empire. The Tokyo university's squad has made several trips to the Pacific Coast besides the national tour in 1921.

Among the many college and university teams from the United States to tour Japan, only one, the University of Washington, has succeeded in winning a majority of games from the Waseda nine. The Japanese collegians have taken naturally to baseball and ordinarily produce brilliant fielding but weak hitting teams.
