1956 Japanese Goodwill Tour II


Members of the 1956 Brooklyn Dodger team gather in front of the Atomic Memorial in Hiroshima, Japan during their fall tour of Japan following the 1956 World Series. A bronze plaque from the Dodgers was presented at the Hiroshima stadium with the following legend: “We dedicate this visit in memory of those baseball fans and others who died by atomic action on August 6, 1945. May their souls rest in peace and with God’s help and man’s resolution peace will prevail, forever, amen.” Among those attending the presentation were Dodger President Walter O’Malley, manager Walter Alston, and Dodger players as Pee Wee Reese, Roy Campanella, and Duke Snider.
