Ichiro! and Sasaki in the news
From the Japan Times, “Sasaki’s deal with BayStars is the richest ever in NPB” 650m 円, unless I miss my guess, is a shade over $6 million.
And check out this interview with Ichiro! That’s right, it’s an interview with Ichiro!
“It’s important to flex your body muscles, but more important to flex your brain muscles. Veterans have a tendency to be stubborn because they want to believe what they’ve been doing for years is right, but if you do that you can’t move on,” Ichiro said.
“Once you stop looking you stop discovering. I used to think there was nothing new for me to learn, but I didn’t stop searching. And look what happened,” he said.
Man, Ichiro! is cool. Thanks to several readers for the heads-up.
