According to the caption on Getty, you‚Äôre looking at ‚ÄúA women‚Äôs baseball team in Tokyo, Japan, circa 1960. They each have a badge reading ‚ÄėOkada‚Äô on their uniforms.‚ÄĚ There‚Äôs no further information, which leaves some questions: Was there an active women‚Äôs professional baseball circuit in Japan circa 1960? Is this a League of Their Own scenario? If you know anything about women and baseball in midcentury Japan, please do spill.
