Immigrants Of The Week: Kazuo Matsui, M. Night Shyamalan, Wolfgang Puck, Ted Koppel, And Branka Katic

by Greg Siskind

Editor's note: Here are some entries from Greg Siskind's blog.

KAZUO MATSUI - BASEBALL PLAYER

I have not posted a lot of baseball players here since the list of possibilities is massive and it's nice to highlight lots of sports, not just the one (along with hockey) that probably constitutes the bulk of foreign athletes in this country.

But tonight I'm watching the World Series and in case it ends tonight (and it's looking like it at as the Red Sox lead here in the 7th), I should get at least one player mentioned.

So I'm picking Japanese star player Kazuo Matsui who came to the US as the first Japanese infielder when he joined the Mets in 2003. He had a rough season in 2005 and was traded to the Rockies last year. His season has been much better this year and he hit his first grand slam in the National League Division Series against the Phillies a few weeks ago which helped give the Rockies a lead they would not relinquish. Matsui also hit a double and a triple in the game, falling just a single short of becoming the only player to hit a cycle during a post season game.
