The Japanese Central League is scheduled to begin regular season play this Friday, exactly two weeks after the earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan.

League commissioners and owners have been calling for the season to begin as scheduled, but players and fans have been calling for at the very least a delay in the start of the season.  Fans have gone so far as to call for a boycott of the season, and players have threatened to go on strike.

A full article on this can be found here, and is a reminder how sports go hand-in-hand with the state of a society.
