Speaking of baseball

Regarding The Associated Press story “MLB tries to ease language barrier with new rule” (March 16 and TribLIVE.com) about Major League Baseball players who don't know enough English to order a meal: Let them go hungry until they learn the language.

This country accommodates and makes apologies for every “disadvantaged” group or minority that lacks the motivation to integrate into American society or support themselves. Get an interpreter for mound conferences with such pitchers? Baloney.

Part of the preparation for the majors should be a working knowledge of English, with ongoing tutoring to become fluent in the language.

Illegal aliens already suck family support from the American poor while, with few exceptions, making no contributions to the American way of life.
