History: The 100th Infantry team consisted of Japanese-American players from Hawaii. After the Empire of Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, the U.S. government rounded up Japanese-American citizens and sent them to internment camps, however the soldiers of the 100th infantry were granted an opportunity to “prove their patriotism.” But rather than allow them to stay in Hawaii, they were sent to Camp McCoy in Wisconsin. There they played baseball with other Camp McCoy personnel, but soon founded their own club, which they called the Aloha Team, with an emphasis on their Hawaiian – rather than Japanese – identity.
