    As explained at the Society of California Pioneers, the United States and Japan weren't exactly on the best of terms in 1949. General Douglas MacArthur, commander of the Pacific theater, however, gave the San Francisco Seals the okay to play baseball in Japan. His wife, as shown in the second photo, threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the first game between the Seals and the Tokyo Giants at Korakuen Stadium on October 15, 1949. Standing next to her is Maj. General William Marquet.
