Wally Yonamine: Sportsman who fought prejudice in two sports and in two countries

Wally Yonamine was a sportsman whose career forced him to face prejudice in two separate sports, on two separate continents, and for opposite reasons. In 1947, playing American football for the San Francisco 49ers, the first Japanese-American in the professional game, he faced considerable resentment resulting from the recently-ended war against Japan. And as the first foreigner to play baseball in the Japanese major leagues, he was referred to as the "Japanese Jackie Robinson", after the black star who integrated American baseball, and faced a similar onslaught of racial abuse and harsh treatment.

But for baseball fans it means something else: the most famous home run of all, hit by Bobby Thomson to win the National League pennant for the New York Giants in 1951.

Business Diary: Outed by World of Warcraft

It's not that the sort of people who play fantasy games are embarrassed by their hobby, you understand, just that they want to protect their privacy like everyone else. World of Warcraft's online players are up in arms after Blizzard Entertainment, the company that created the game, said that fans would henceforth have to use their real names on its discussion forums.
