the importance of being don wakamatsu

This is a great article in the San Jose Mercury News on Don Wakamatsu, who was recently named manager of the Seattle Mariners, making him the first Asian American coach in the Major Leagues: Mariners manager wants to set example for other Asian-Americans in sports.

As the son of Japanese American internees (his father was born in the Tule Lake camp), it seems like the guy really understands the significant place he holds, and what he represents, for Asian Americans in professional sports. Here's hoping he does great things with the Mariners next season.
