Rob Fitts' latest book "Mashi: The Unfulfilled Baseball Dreams of Masanori Murakami, the First Japanese Major Leaguer" will be published on April 1st this year (and is available for pre-order at both Amazon and Barnes & Noble). Rob is planning a lecture tour this summer with Murakami to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Murakami's only full MLB season. He's started a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to cover Murakami's travel expenses. There are some great "thank you" gifts available for different levels of pledges starting as low as $5. Check out the campaign's webpage for all the details.
