Johjima on Sadaharu Oh

Oh, the Japanese baseball legend, resigned last night as manager of the Softbank Hawks of the Japanese Pacific League because of health concerns.
I asked Mariners catcher Kenji Johjima for reaction. He spoke through interpreter Ken Barron.
“In Japan, for the entire nation, you can say he is almost god-like,” Johjima said of Oh, the home run king of all of baseball with 868. “Because he’s like the Babe Ruth of Japan. For me personally, he’s like a father figure for me in the world of baseball. All the philosophies and most of the things I’ve learned in baseball are from him.”
