Who is Tanaka Masashiro?

If you are a baseball fan, you know that Japan's Tanaka Masahiro has joined the New York Yankees following a 2013 in Japan's baseball league with an astounding record of 24-0 and an ERA (earned run average) of a miniscule 1.27.

He signed a seven-year, $155 million deal.

But for all of the articles I have ever read on Tanaka, only one has actually captured the flavor of Japan, while offering me a full background on the Japanese phenom.

Please check out this New York Times article for the full scoop HERE.

To the article's writer Barry Bearak - Bravo!

The same goes to Edward Linsmier who took the awesome photo above for The New York Times.

Cheers,
Andrew Joseph
