kosuke and the cubs

Here's a story on Japan's Kosuke Fukudome, who became the 10th Japanese position player to sign with a Major League Baseball team: A Cool-Thinking Hitter and a Long Title Drought. The left-handed, power-hitting outfielder will be playing with the Chicago Cubs, who go into spring training facing the 100th anniversary of their last World Series title. The goal for Fukudome: learn English, hit major league pitching, and help conquer the Cubs' curse.
