Baseball Saved Us

Baseball Saved Us

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

In 1942, just two months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt signed into law Executive Order 9066, authorizing the forced relocation of almost 120,000 Japanese Americans from the West Coast—including Washington State—to incarceration camps in desolate or remote areas. Taking only what they could carry, they were forced to leave their homes and communities, imprisoned behind barbed wire, and guarded by soldiers. Most were American citizens and many were children.

Based on the award-winning children’s book by Seattle author Ken Mochizuki, "Baseball Saved Us" follows the journey of young Shiro who, along with his family, is imprisoned in an incarceration camp. As Shiro struggles to learn how to play baseball on the hot dusty fields, he learns more than just the game—he learns how to survive.

From The 5th Avenue’s Adventure Musical Theater Touring Company, this original musical teaches an important piece of American history. This production is best suited for families with kids in grades 1-8.
