it was amazing
Read from March 15 to 17, 2010 — I own a copy , read count: 1

Fascinating look at the history of baseball in Japan and how foreigners (mainly Americans) fit into it.

States that the main cultural difference is in how baseball is perceived by the different nations - people in the U.S. see baseball as a group of individuals working towards a common goal, Japanese see baseball as a true group, with all members sacrificing for the benefit of the whole.
