Yes, this is gonna sound like another laundry list to many. Oh well.
So, a foreign player Wladimir Balentien (from a little tiny island north of Venezuela) just broke the homerun record of 55 set by Japan's own Babe Ruth, Sadaharu Oh (still alive at 73). And not a single mention from the Japanese press that the reason it hasn't been broken before is because on 3 separate occasions that were not that long ago, foreign players who were about to break Oh's record were deliberately walked for the remainder of the season to prevent them breaking it.
I really should be happy that they allowed the record to be broken by a foreigner, I guess Japan is getting somewhere with this.
