Comments on Major League Baseball in China

I've seen Mr. Widmer's work at festivals and on home DVD, and now online! A passionate filmmaker with a unique eye - great subject, great work!

"I've only been to Chinatown in San Francisco and New York...This is like a huge Chinatown that just never stops!"

Probably the funniest quote by a Westerner in China that I've ever heard. This baseball guys are such buffoons!

This was a great piece about the growing excitement of baseball in China. It was beautifully filmed and edited and really showed a side of China that one rarely sees. I am really excited for MLB and for the children of China. This is a great first step to bring baseball to Asia.

MLB wants a piece of the pie.

FANTASTIC...in just a few minutes of watching, you can really get the feeling of energy and intensity of these young players. So well filmed and edited. I love this.

"This is a great first step to bring baseball to Asia."

This is ridiculous! The Japanese have been playing baseball for a long time, and it is one of the most popular sports in the country.
