Kowano Brothers Managed Major League Clubhouses

Yosh and Nobe Kawano emerged from concentration camps for the Japanese during World War II to become long-standing employees of two of the most historic major-league franchises.  They didn’t play baseball themselves, instead holding jobs that made sure major-league clubhouses were in tip-top shape to support the ballplayers.

Yosh spent nearly 65 years in the clubhouses at Wrigley Field for the Chicago Cubs, while Kawano had a similar job in the Dodgers organization.  Both brothers are now in their mid-90s.
