Baseball was a popular sport for Japanese Canadians in British Columbia, prior to internment. Two Japanese Canadian baseball leagues in Vancouver were the Diamond League: Asahi, Mikado, Fuso, Yamoto; and the Junior League: Grandview, Kitsilano, Comet, and the Asahi Cubs (1932). The Vancouver Asahi Baseball team was later inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame on June 28, 2003.
