  • U.S. and Japan Pro Sports

    A 5 page essay comparing the professional sports of Japan and the United States. Though almost every Japanese citizen follows their traditional sport of sumo wrestling, the growth of baseball in popularity and following in recent years has led even the Japanese to refer to it as the national sport. Nearly a mirror image of its American counterpart in administrative structure, it has allowed Japan to add another, unexpected, export: professional baseball players to U.S. teams.

Ten sources are cited in the bibliography.

  • The Korean Influence in Baseball

    4 pages in length. Baseball, America's hometown sport, has experienced a metamorphosis of cultural infusion since the early 1980s when a very large, very talented Mexican by the name of Fernando Valenzuela joined up as a pitcher with the Los Angeles Dodgers. After shutting out the Houston Astros in his first major league game, the country was swept with "Fernandomania," a grand reception for a foreign-born baseball player who single-handedly opened the door for all other international players to follow. Korean Pitcher Chan Ho Park, like his predecessor two decades before, also signed with the Dodgers but without benefit of any past professional experience. This critical detail did not impose upon Parks' ability to make a tremendous impression on the owners and the crowd alike, inasmuch as he inevitably made his first appearance on the season's opening day, 1994, a distinction that also cast him as major league's first Korean player. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Baseball's Color Barrier and Jackie Robinson

    A 4 page biography/report on the life and accomplishments of Jackie Robinson-- the American baseball player known for 'breaking the color barrier' and becoming the first Black player to gain widespread acceptance playing for a Major League team. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
