Roberto Barbon, primer cubano (y latino) en el beisbol japonés

Según este interesante artículo en el New York Times.

Barbon became the first foreigner to reach 1,000 hits in Japan, and until recently his 1,353 games played was tops among foreigners. […] He stole 308 bases, the most of any Westerner in Japan, and led the league in steals for three straight seasons beginning in 1958. He is the last foreigner to steal 50 bases in a season.
