The 1931 U.S. Major League All Star Tour of Japan featured a power packed lineup of American Hall of Famers, including Lou Gehrig, Lefty Grove, Mickey Cochrane, Al Simmons, Rabbit Maranville, Frankie Frisch and George Kelly, plus Japan HOFer Lefty O'Doul. The U.S. team played teams consisting of many of Japan's all time greats. However, the Americans prevailed in all 17 games. This close-up team image depicts the entire team. Lefty Grove is seen at top center, while Lou Gehrig is found at upper right. Despite its condition, the photo truly captures one of the most important events in U.S./Japan baseball history.
