On Sunday, August 2, 2015, Christy Chung, Rich Kamimura, Leon Kimura, Rika Tanaka, Sharon Uyeda, Susan Yuen and Raymond Yuen, along with many other Japanese American community groups, celebrated the San Jose Giants’ Japanese Heritage Night at Municipal Stadium.
San Jose JACL member Dale Yoshihara and Advisory Council member Yosh Uchida threw the ceremonial pitches.
Adding to the fun: Travis Ishikawa bobbleheads were given out to the first 1,000 fans, and seventh-inning stretch balloons (a popular tradition in Japan) were released by the crowd.
The San Jose Giants won the game against Stockton Ports in a 6–2 victory.
