Something more positive about Mr. Baseball

I have found it useful to use selective clips which focus on Selleck, the arrogant American. For instance, the section from his entry into the locker room until he starts the warm-up exercises (about 10 minutes) is good for showing shoe removal, respect for the coach, and an American player who has adapted well to Japan. That section is quite respectful of Japan. In general, many teachers have found the film a good entre point for drawing students toward Japan. Perhaps only parts are valuable.
