    Wakamatsu is the first major-league manager of Asian descent, his father being a third generation Japanese-American born in a detention camp near the California-Oregon border during the World War II. But this may not mean much on the language front, since Wakamatsu himself admits he only speaks a smattering of that tongue.

    At least the Reds did something right back in the mid 80s when it came to drafting.

    Oops- I meant I bet he speaks more Asian, not African. Well, it seemed funny when I posted it...

    I actually re-read the article to see if the writer wrote that. If he had, I couldn't think of a quicker way to get fired in Seattle.

    This should add a new term to the baseball lexicon. When a manager makes what seems to be a nonsensical decision fans will be able to say "That move is Wakamatsu."
