Weekend Autograph Opportunities: Book Signing with Mashi Murakami - The First Japanese MLB'er

Here are this weekends autograph opportunities and events throughout the Southland. As always, be sure to check the Blue Heaven Calendar for other events (a link can always be found on the tab at the top of this page, just left of center), and always confirm with the establishment. Everything is subject to change.  Please email me with any tips about upcoming events in Southern California.  As the rest of the week progresses I'll update this post with other events (if there are any) as I become aware of them.  Also, I don't always list every event below, so be sure to check my Calendar.  I always try to favor free signing events over paying events.  Click on any pic to embiggen.


For the 50th anniversary celebration of the first Japanese baseball player in the Majors, join legend Masanori "Mashi" Murakami and author Robert Fitts of the recently published "Mashi: The Unfulfilled Baseball Dreams of Masanori Murakami, the First Japanese Major Leaguer" for a discussion on Japanese baseball, Mashi’s career and importance to U.S.-Japanese relations.

Copies of the book "Mashi" will be on sale for $25, and Mashi will autograph the book for free!  Autographed balls & cards will also be offered for sale.  No personal items will be signed at this event.  The event takes place on Monday, July 6 at 7:00PM.  Go here or here for information.  You must RSVP for the event.
