A Japanese-Iranian baseball player has made headlines of late after he showed interest in playing in North America’s Major League. Yu Darvish, 25, has been a national sensation in Japan while playing for the Nippon-Ham Fighters setting a record in his native country for having five straight seasons with an ERA of less than 2.00. Darvish’s Iranian father and Japanese mother met in Florida while attending university. The pitcher is in the midst of being the first Japanese-Iranian to play in Major League baseball history.
