Immigrants Of The Week: Hideki Matsui, and Chan Ho Park

by Greg Siskind

IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: HIDEKI MATSUI - BASEBALL PLAYER

 Hideki_Matsui_in_USA-7
New York Yankees designated hitter Hideki Matsui, a Japanese native, just hit a beautiful home run in game 2 of the World Series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Matsui is an unusual player because he bats left-handed and throws right-handed. The 35-year old Matsui was a star in Japan before he was recruited to play for the Yankees in 2003. He's the first Japanese player to hit 100 or more homers in the Major League. Matsui also has the odd distinction of being the player selected by Paul Rudd for a fantasy baseball draft in the movie Knocked Up and he also make the news for donating $500,000 to victims of the 2004 tsunami.
