The film's story focuses on the Nomura family, whose mother and father are both <a href=\"/wiki/Issei\" title=\"Issei\">Issei</a>, and their two <a href=\"/wiki/Nisei\" title=\"Nisei\">Nisei</a> children, Lane and Lyle. Following the signing of <a href=\"/wiki/Executive_Order_9066\" title=\"Executive Order 9066\">Executive Order 9066</a> in February 1942, the Nomuras, along with over 120,000 other Japanese living on the West Coast, are forced into desolate government camps across the country. To boost the morale of the younger inmates and help build a sense of community, Mr. Nomura, who was once a professional baseball player, forms an in-camp league within the concentration camp, in an attempt to to instill some sense of normality into their lives. \n</p><p>When the military draft is reinstated, Lane, the oldest son, enlists in the U.S. Army, joining the segregated all-Nisei <a href=\"/wiki/442nd_Regimental_Combat_Team\" title=\"442nd Regimental Combat Team\">442nd Regimental Combat Team</a> and taking part in the <a href=\"/wiki/Rescue_of_the_Lost_Battalion\" title=\"Rescue of the Lost Battalion\">Rescue of the Lost Battalion</a>, losing a leg in the battle. In contrast, Lyle, the younger son, is initially embittered by his and his family's incarceration and the resultant loss of baseball scholarship he had been offered. But his relationship with the white daughter of a camp guard and baseball prove to be turning points for him. The film climaxes with a game between camp inmates and a local team from the outside whose members display their bigotry against Japanese Americans.\n</p><p>The film was shot near the original Topaz camp in Delta, Utah, and includes historical footage shot of Topaz in the 1940s by <a href=\"/wiki/Dave_Tatsuno\" title=\"Dave Tatsuno\">Dave Tatsuno,</a> who used a camera which had been smuggled into the camp to film scenes of everyday life and events, and whose documentary footage has now been placed in the National Film Registry, part of the Library of Congress. <i>American Pastime</i> stars Aaron Yoo (Lyle Nomura); Gary Cole (Billy Burrell); Leonardo Sam (Lane Nomura); and Sarah Drew (Katie Burrell).\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a href=\"/wiki/Patricia_Wakida\" title=\"Patricia Wakida\">Patricia Wakida</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Wakida, Patricia</div>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">Related Articles</span></h2>\n<p>\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n<h3><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\"></span></h3>\n<p>\n</p>\n<ul><li> <a href=\"/wiki/Sports_and_recreation_in_camp\" title=\"Sports and recreation in camp\">Sports and recreation in camp</a></li>\n<li> <a href=\"/wiki/Dramatic_films/videos_on_incarceration\" title=\"Dramatic films/videos on incarceration\">Dramatic films/videos on incarceration</a></li></ul>\n</div>\n</div>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2>\n<p><i>American Pastime</i> on Nisei Baseball Research Project website. <a class=\"external free\" href=\"http://www.niseibaseball.com/news_american_pastime.htm\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://www.niseibaseball.com/news_american_pastime.htm</a>.\n</p><p>Banks, Taunya Lovell. \"<a class=\"external text\" href=\"http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1336686\" rel=\"nofollow\">Outsider Citizens: Film Narratives About the Internment of Japanese Americans</a>.\" <i>Suffolk University Law Review</i> 42 (2009): 769–94.\n</p><p>Dancis, Bruce. \"<a class=\"external text\" href=\"http://www.popmatters.com/article/pastime-blends-love-baseball-and-world-war-ii-internment/\" rel=\"nofollow\">'Pastime' Blends Love, Baseball and World War II Internment.</a>\" <i>PopMatters</i>, May 30, 2007. \n</p><p>Mori, Darryl. \"<a class=\"external text\" href=\"http://www.discovernikkei.org/en/journal/2007/8/24/american-pastime/\" rel=\"nofollow\">Baseball in the Camps: Behind the Scenes of 'American Pastime.'</a>\" Discover Nikkei, Aug. 24, 2007.\n</p><p>Salyers, Abbie Lynn. \"The Internment of Memory: Forgetting and Remembering the Japanese American World War II Experience.\" Ph.D. dissertation, Rice University, 2009.\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.120 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.119 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 392/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2673/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 8233/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1298/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 4/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:1528-0!*!0!!*!5!* and timestamp 20170310091400 and revision id 23553\n -->\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
