The Transition

Wright Thompson of ESPN has a very nice piece up today about the difficult transition from Japan to the US, and highlights some of the major cultural challenges for players seeking to master a new level of competition. I know hundreds of people who have struggled to make a life outside Japan, without the additional pressures of training and play at the Major League level and the travel associated with such and undertaking. It's not easy. There are however, musicians, scholars, business owners, salaried employees and their families in your community. Take this into account when you read Wright Thompson's piece.
