After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, he and his family are forcibly removed from their home and placed in the Gila River, Arizona, concentration camp. Discouraged at first by the drudgery of the desert camp, he begins to build a baseball field in an open area of the camp. He is soon joined by his sons, then by others, as they clear the space, water down the sand, plant grass, and build bleachers. Eventually, the field is finished, and some 6,000 spectators come to see the first game.\n</p><p>Yuko Shimizu illustrated the book with Japanese ink drawings that were digitally colored. An Afterword includes a brief biography of Zenimura and author's and artist's notes and is followed by a bibliography.\n</p>\n</div></div><div class=\"section\" id=\"Additional_Information\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Additional_Information\">Additional Information</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>Author Marissa Moss (1959– ) has written over sixty books for children since 1989. An art history graduate from the University of California, Berkeley, she began as an illustrator of children's books and has self-illustrated many of her books. She is probably best known for her \"Amelia's Notebook\" series for beginning readers. She has also written a number of books focusing on women's history, both fiction and non-fiction biographies. \n</p><p>Illustrator Yuko Shimizu was born in Tokyo, but is based in New York. Well-known for her magazine and newspaper work as well as for comic book cover art, <i>Barbed Wire Baseball</i> was her first children's book.\n</p><p>The story is based on the real life story of Zenimura, who really did build a baseball field in Gila River. The book accurately depicts life in the concentration camps for the most part, with only a claim that inmates were not allowed outside their barracks after dark (page 23), an exaggeration. In the Afterword, Moss writes that the Japanese American were incarcerated \"[a]lthough they were loyal American citizens\" (38); about one-third—including Zenimura himself—were <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Issei\" title=\"Issei\">Issei</a> and were prohibited by law from becoming naturalized American citizens.\n</p><p>An earlier novel for slightly older children—Kathryn Fitzmaurice's <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/A_Diamond_in_the_Desert_(book)\" title=\"A Diamond in the Desert (book)\">A Diamond in the Desert</a></i> (2012)—is also set in Gila River and is partially based on Zenimura's story.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<p>Might also like: <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Baseball_Saved_Us_(book)\" title=\"Baseball Saved Us (book)\">Baseball Saved Us</a></i> by Ken Mochizuki; <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Fish_for_Jimmy_(book)\" title=\"Fish for Jimmy (book)\">Fish for Jimmy</a></i> by Katie Yamasaki; <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/So_Far_from_the_Sea_(book)\" title=\"So Far from the Sea (book)\">So Far from the Sea</a></i> by Eve Bunting\n</p>\n</div></div><div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>Author website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://www.marissamoss.com/book.php?id=57\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://www.marissamoss.com/book.php?id=57</a>.\n</p><p>Illustrator website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://yukoart.com/work/barbed-wire-baseball-book/\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://yukoart.com/work/barbed-wire-baseball-book/</a>.\n</p><p>Publisher website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://www.abramsbooks.com/product/barbed-wire-baseball_9781419705212/\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://www.abramsbooks.com/product/barbed-wire-baseball_9781419705212/</a>.\n</p><p>Tomita, Twila. \"Baseball as a Symbol of Hope.\" <i>Nichi Bei Weekly</i>, Jan. 1–7, 2015, 16.\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"Related_Articles\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">Related Articles</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"\"><h3><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\"></span></h3><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>\n</p>\n<ul><li> <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Sports_and_recreation_in_camp\" title=\"Sports and recreation in camp\">Sports and recreation in camp</a></li></ul>\n</div></div></div>\n</div></div></div>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.124 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.129 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 346/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2209/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 8719/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 2547/2097152 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:3615-0!*!0!!en!5!* and timestamp 20180309150244 and revision id 28080\n -->\n</div></div><div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
