A large Giclee print of this painting is now joining the other paintings of baseball greats on the outside of Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium, Vancouver, B.C., Canada
The official presentation of this Asahi painting was Friday, August 15, 2014, at Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium, Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Kaye Kamanishi threw out the first pitch for the 1:05 Vancouver Canadians game. Wes Fung, who was instrumental in organizing the painting’s commission and installation at the Nat said: “After a road-trip lasting over 70 years it’s time to bring home those Asahi boys of long ago summers, back to the Nat, our Field of Dreams. Throwing out the first pitch is the last surviving member of those great Asahi teams, the indomitable Mr. Kaye Kamanishi.” Below is a photo of Mr. Kaye Kamanishi and his family at the Nat just before he threw out the first pitch.
Prints for sale include the following sizes: 20″ x 16″ x 1.375″ (edge width), $160; 20″ x 16″ x .75″ (edge width), $150; 11″ x 7.2″ x 1.375″ (edge width), $110; 11″ x 7.2″ x .75″ (edge width), $100.
