Champions

Pacific Northwest dominance

From 1928 through 1941, the Asahi club was victorious eight times in eleven series of championship play for the Pacific Northwest crown. Against teams of Japanese descent, like the club from Fife, Washington, the Asahis won the title five years in a row from 1937 right up to their final season in 1941.
