    Nearly a decade ago I read Robert Whiting's YOU GOTTA HAVE WA and really appreciated his coverage of several formerfuture major leaguers of the time and their experiences with Japanese baseball I recently stumbled across a recommendation for this book as well as a copy of the book and feel it gives a complete story of the league as well as the influence of foreign players on the game As this moves into the '90's and early '00's it was interesting to see a shift in Japanese culture and a conflict among whether these changes undermined the tradition or challenged the uality of play As someone who appreciates a good underdog story this history of the pro game in Japan really was informative and entertaining Somewhere down the line I'm hoping to find a book that covers the league's history closer to present time and that if it's only a fraction this good it will be interesting and worth the investment of time and attention to read

    Some interesting parts about the start of Japanese baseball and the differences between American and Japanese style baseball The Japanese play a lot small ball apparently National League style They take less chances in an effort to save face as many American players comment Pretty interesting
