I can't wait to see this guys jersey when he joins a MLB team

200px-Kosuke_FukudomeApparently the Boston Red Sox are interested in Kosuke Fukudome, a Japanese baseball star. 

He won the Central League MVP award in 2006. He hit .351/.438/.653 and led the league in batting average (28 points ahead of runner-up Seung-Yeop Lee), runs (117), doubles (47), slugging and OBP (36 points ahead of Tyrone Woods). He was second in triples (5), third in total bases (324), walks (76) and tied for third in hits (174), fifth in RBI (104) and sixth in home runs (31).

Well you would probably see Kosuke on his jersey, so that would spoil it for you.

I'm not so sure that's true. The Cardinals have a Japanese player, So Taguchi, and he has Taguchi on the back of his jersey.

Here's another really robust page on Kosuke Fukudome -- another wiki page, but with videos and news/opinions too.
