Los Angeles Nippons Authentic Jacket
History: The Nippons were LA's top Japanese team before World War II, competing against the best semi-pro and amateur talent of the day. The day after the Empire of Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, FBI agents showed up at the Nippons' game against a Paramount Studios team and questioned the players. This was the end of the Golden Age of Japanese baseball on the West Coast, as Order 9066 soon forced Japanese-Americans from their homes for the war's duration.

What can I say...Ebbit Field (Susie) customer service was there to answer any of my questions about theis cool jacket. When I received this jacket, the packaging was well package and all. When I put on this jacket (size XL) was roomy and felt so good. Not to mention, it has a creative design on the front pockets which I liked. The Navy Blue color is true to Navy Blue, not a light blue, etc. There was only one (1) problem...I live in Los Angeles...and the weather has been in the 80 degree weather...Lol So...I can't wait until the weather is alot cooler so I can wear my jacket with style. So, On that Note...Hope you are Well & Safe during this "pandemic"! Love! Ebbit Field...you knocked it over the fence once again! Best, Vince Ybarra
