Hideki Matsui & Bobby Valentine: Uniting the World Series and the Japan Series
According to a recent article in The Japan Times, World Series MVP Hideki Matsui "likes the idea of games between the World Series and Japan Series champions even though he may be retired by the time such a match up takes place. Baseball commissioner Bud Selig told his Japanese counterpart earlier this month that he is open to games between the champions of both countries but no steps have been taken to set up such a series."
On a similar note, last Thursday (January 21st), we were lucky enough to have Bobby Valentine come and discuss his experiences as one of the most successful baseball managers in the world. For those of you who don't know, Bobby Valentine is the only manager in baseball history to lead a team to both the Japan Series and the World Series. You can learn more about Valentine and the event on our website.
