I don't watch much baseball (or other sports) on TV anymore, but this is the type of guy I find impressive:

....he [Hisanori Takahashi] announced that he was leaving to pitch in the United States before he knew if any teams wanted him.

On Jan. 31, when his former teammates with the Giants reported to their spring training, Takahashi packed his suitcases and flew to Arizona, without a team to report to and with little hope of getting a guaranteed major league contract.

“Just find me a park where I can throw,” he told his agent, Anthony Na. “It doesn’t matter what color I will be wearing, I will be ready.” NYT
