1958 Cardinals vs. Korean All-Stars

Discussion in the Baseball Asia forum
1958 Cardinals vs. Korean All-Stars
Quick Japanese / Korea baseball history question. In 1958 the St. Louis Cardinals went on a tour of Japan. I have also found information that they played a Korean all-star team in 1958, and have seen a picture of the then-Korean president in the crowd and a caption that says St. Louis Cardinals. I'm trying to find out if this happend in Korea, or if it was Japan.

Any help clearing this up and any information that can be provided would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I just heard from Pro Yakyu historian Rob Fitts that, according to the Pacific Stars and Stripes, the Cardinals played in Seoul in front of 30,000 fans on October 21, 1958.

Thanks, Rob, for the quick response.

Mr. Fitts, thank you very much for your response. I greatly appreciate it.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
