New York: Warner Books, 2004. First edition. Hardcover. A fine copy in dust jacket. Press release laid in. Matsui ... Nomo ... Sasaki ... Ichiro ... America's national pastime has developed a decidedly Japanese flair. In the decade since pitcher Hideo Nomo first tested the waters as a Los Angeles Dodger in 1995, almost two dozen Japanese have donned the uniform of a major league baseball team, many of them becoming household names. None have been as popular or have had as much of an impact on the game as Ichiro Suzuki. Here, Japanese-American cultural expert Robert Whiting examines the extraordinary phenomenon of Japanese ballplayers making it big, and re-inventing the game, in America. 272 pp, illustrated from photographs.
