Playing Major League Baseball - A Job Americans Won't Do? by Joe Guzzardi
The Social Contract Press
Joe Guzzardi of Californians for Population Stabilization explains that minor league baseball is now over 50% foreign born and major league baseball is now over 40% foreign born players. The tragedy is that thousands of potential American players are being shut out in favor of cheaper foreign players. He discusses the impact of major league baseball outsourcing training camps to foreign countries - notably the Dominican Republic.
The video "Ballplayer: Pelotero" was discussed in the presentation - watch the trailer at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRwGxalD2dk.
