In 1960, the Giants played 16 games in Japan, leaving with a record of 11 wins, four losses and one tie. Willie Mays, who missed the Giants' 1953 Tour due to military duty, started every game, batting a robust .393 with seven homers. Not surprisingly, the two other big guns of the Tour were Willie McCovey (.423, 8 homers) and Orlando Cepeda (.344, 5 homers). The ticket offered here is for the game of 10/23/60 played at Korakuen Stadium in front of 36,000 fans. The All Japan team rallied in the bottom of the 9th inning against Giants' pitcher Sherman "Roadblock" Jones to defeat the Giants by a score of 2-1. Hall of Famer Tadashi Sugiura started for the All Japan team, holding the Giants scoreless during his stint on the mound.
