Banzai Babe Ruth Wins Seymour Medal

Babe Ruth Central would like to congratulate author and BRC friend and fan, Robert Fitts, who recently won the prestigious Seymour Medal for his book, “Banzai Babe Ruth”. Dr. Harold Seymour was a legendary baseball historian and the medal is awarded in his honor to the author recognized by the Society for American Baseball Researcher (SABR) for the best historical or biographical baseball book of the prior year. Just to be nominated is a great honor. In addition, Robert’s book is the first to win based on the topic of Japanese/U.S. baseball.
Visit to listen to our interview with Rob Fitts last year about “Banzai Babe Ruth”, as well as purchase the book.

Congrats Rob!
