ICAS / Temple Main Campus Joint Event

What Baseball Tells Us about Japan (and the U.S.A.)!

Thursday, September 8, 2016   12:45 - 14:00

Speaker:
  • Michael Leeds (Professor and Chair of CLA's Economics Department, Temple University and past Associate Dean of Temple University Japan Campus)

* Please note this event is taking place in Temple University (main campus) in Philadelphia, USA.
* This is a co-hosted event by Professor Kathy Uno, Asian Studies Program, History Department of Temple University (TU) and the Institute of Contemporary Asian Studies (ICAS) at Temple University Japan Campus (TUJ).

Baseball is no longer a uniquely American sport. While baseball games in Japan look like those in the U.S., the business practices of Nippon Professional Baseball and Major League Baseball differ sharply. Dr. Leeds presents several key differences and shows how they reflect broader differences in the economies and cultures of Japan and America.
