ESPN - The United States and Japanese baseball champions could meet in a Global World Series, Japanese daily Nikkan Sports reported Thursday.
Nippon Professional Baseball commissioner Ryozo Kato was quoted as saying his Major League Baseball counterpart, Bud Selig, had agreed the winners of the two countries' professional leagues should play each other.
"I was surprised, Mr. Selig said he wants to realize the plan before his tenure ends," Kato told Nikkan Sports.
I wonder if this would make the Nippon League more competitive with salaries and cause them to get more talent. It would be nice to see the Japanese, Korean, and Taiwanese leagues combine to one large league, then you would almost have a true world series....
