Twenty-five chapter members and friends gathered at the Society of California Pioneers to enjoy lunch and a private tour of the exhibit celebrating the 1949 San Francisco Seals’ tour of Japan. Mark Macrae explained the history of the tour and talked about how the exhibit came together. The exhibit includes rare footage compiled from old movies and memorabilia, ranging from players’ kimonos to Japanese baseball cards. A special fundraising raffle raised funds that would be donated to Conrado Marrero, the Cuban Washington Senators’ pitcher.
