Field of dreams: Major League Baseball makes pitch for Chinese star

A coach’s voice in an unmistakably American accent rings out across a baseball field: “Attaboy, good job Wayne, nice throw!”

It could easily be California or Florida, but this is a world away in Nanjing and Major League Baseball is hunting for its first star from China.

If—or more likely when—that happens, he will probably come from here.

MLB has three development centres in China and in February, three youngsters from the Nanjing site were signed to the Milwaukee Brewers.

A piece of interest for those curious about the worldwide expansion of the national pastime.
