Lodi Orions 1972 T-Shirt
History: Tokyo Lotte Orions owner Nagayoshi Makamura had a dream: A ‘true” World Series with the United States and Japanese teams participating. To that end he purchased the Lodi franchise in the California League and installed Lotte Orions scout Ichizo Aoki as GM and added a handful of Japanese players to those supplied by the affiliated Baltimore Oroles. The team (playing then as the Lions) finished tied for fist place with Salinas and won the post-season playoffs in the second season of Makamura’s ownership, 1973.
