How do you say Dodger in Japanese or Korean?
Here is my story that aired last night on 790 KABC as part of the Lasorda at His Best series presented by Skechers:
I had Hideo Nomo and Chan-Ho Park on the same team. Nomo is Japanese and Chan-Ho is Korean. I told them I would be their father away from home. I took care of them on and off the field.
I would take them out to eat. I would ask Nomo what he wanted, pasta or sushi.
He would say pasta.
Then I would ask Chan-Ho if he wanted pasta or sushi, and he would say both.
Both of them turned out to be outstanding pitchers. Not only did they represent the Dodgers well, they represented their home countries to the highest degree of class, dignity and character.
