Cronin Papers: Masanori Murakami

Discussion in the Pro Yakyu History forum
Cronin Papers: Masanori Murakami
For the past month or so, Maury Brown, co-chair of SABR's Business Committee, has been doing a series on the personal documents of Joe Cronin (AL president, 1959-1973) provided by his grandson. A recent entry has a February 1965 letter from Ford Frick (MLB Commissioner, 1951-1965) to all MLB teams concerning Masanori Murakami and the relationship of Japanese and American baseball clubs. Anyway it seems rather interesting as a primary document. The entry is here.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
