Baseball Around The World
- It was very interesting to compare when and how baseball started at different countries. We didn't think baseball has a long history even in Australia. Also, I was surprised to learn that there are only 6 professional teams in each league in Japan, which means 12 professional baseball teams in Japan.
- I was a little disappointed to see that most pictures of the players are vague. Although they are very famous players, their faces are vague and hard to recognize who's who.
- The fact that Japan won the first World Baseball Classic in 2006 should be mentioned in the text instead of the time line at the bottom. :)
