As of 2004, 45% of Major League Baseball players were born outside of the United States. Currently there are 33 countries represented in Major and Minor League Baseball (International). The industry is full of many different people from all around the world. Many teams have to have translators for international players due to the language barrier that some players and teams face. In 1989, Major League Baseball formed Major League Baseball International which focuses on the sport outside of America. The organization has offices in New York, United States, Tokyo, Japan, Sydney, Australia, and London, England (International). These are just some of the changes that are being made to the industry, there are more to come on the future as it grows in size.
The sports industry is very much a team environment. The team owners, managers, coaches, and players all must work together as a team in order to build a sufficient organization.
