Foreigners excel in US baseball

An increasing number of foreign baseball players are playing in the US leagues.

    While the US is embroiled in a debate over restricting illegal immigrants, the gates have been flung open for one special category of foreigners; professional baseball players.

    Players from more than 40 countries can be found on professional playing fields all across the US, and one-in-three players in the major leagues are now foreigners.
