Exhibition: Baseball in the 1990s
Tuesday, February 19, 2008 through Sunday, April 13, 2008
At Exhibition Room of the Baseball Museum

Baseball today is quite different from that in the 1990s. Who could have foreseen baseball as we see today? A university pitcher was rostered in the Japan Team which participated in the Asian preliminary for the Beijing Olympics. There are one or two Japanese Major Leaguers in as many as a third of 30 MLB clubs, where they play a prominent role.
In the oncoming exhibition, baseball in the 1990s will be reviewed with a special attention on (1) the domestic relationship between amateur and pro baseball and (2) their growing globalization.
