The HOVG Podcast: Don Nomura

By

This week, Shawn Anderson and Lou Olsen are joined by Don Nomura.

The legendary baseball agent talks to the boys about the numerous stops on his professional journey (and how his brief baseball career saved him from being killed in a liquor store), representing Japanese superstar Hideo Nomo at a time when his homeland had deemed him a traitor, the importance of the internationalization of baseball and how a loophole led to Major League Baseball’s Asian expansion.
