Perform a radio play-by-play of the Asahis

How would you make the call on the experience of an Asahis game?

Newspaper articles about the Asahis provide a snapshot of their play and the perception the media had of them. Baseball is a leisurely game, providing plenty of opportunity for commentary between plays. To recreate the context and feel of an Asahi game, students will extract details from archival newspaper articles and other resources to deliver an imaginary radio broadcast of a play in an Asahi game along with commentary on the teams and players of the time.
