Today I sow my friends from Japan: Jack Sakazaki with his friend - 1st Japanese baseball player in America (in 1964) Masanori Murakami (a former pitcher for the San Francisco Giants). Murakami san came to speak to students in Berkeley University about his baseball carrier. He came to USA when he was 19. And didn't speak any English. And had no translators. He had to study. After him there was no Japanese Baseball players in America for 30 years. The next one was Nomo.
