Video: Baseball Behind Barbed Wire at Zenimura Field

The 70th Anniversary celebration of Zenimura Field included three days of events: 1) The Oakland A's Tribute to Japanese American Baseball on March 7; 2) A presentation at the Huhugam Heritage Center at Gila River on March 8; and 3) A presentation at the Chandler Sunset Library on March 9. During the two presentations we share the news clip "Baseball Behind Barbed Wire" from KOLD TV13 (Tucson) that highlights a 1945 game that Kenichi Zenimura called "the most thrilling moment at Gila." Below is that news clip. Take some time to watch it. It is informative and inspiring.
