Japanese Players

Japan is obsesed with baseball. high school players become legends during the playoffs.

because of the time difference MLB games are shown in the morning and replayed at night.

Of course only teams that have a Japanese player get shown. So for the Tigers to sign Maeda is a big deal because then some of their games will be shown when he pitches. To sign players they have to be visible in the market. I was stationed in Japan for 8 years
