Sports International

Linda Wertheimer talks sports with Stefan Fatsis of the Wall Street Journal. This weeks topic: the internationalization of sports. Earlier this month, a Japanese-born pitcher faced a Japanese-born hitter -- the first time ever in Major League Baseball. The presence of foreign athletes can also be felt in other sports, including hockey and pro-basketball. Stefan says with all the focus on money in sports, this development is refreshing and exciting.
