[quote]Most of the foreign born players are not immigrants, they continue to live in their native country.

I think it was more along the lines of being a baseball purist (always had some foreign talent but not to this extent) vs. being a conservative and believing that the owners should sign who they want. There are many foreign players that I am huge fans of. Simmons, Cabrerra, Pujos....all are quali...

[quote]It works both ways though. We try and send a lot of our soccer players overseas to Europe so they can better perfect their craft since the leagues there are more developed.

If the great ...
