Robert talks with Jack Curry, who covers the New York Yankees baseball team for the New York Times. They discuss the new Japanese pitcher for the Yankees, Hideki Irabu (HEE-deh-kee EER-ah-boo), and his debut tonight at Yankee Stadium. Irabu was just brought up from the minor leagues, where he has been very successful. It's hope that he can help the Yankees...they've lost four of their last six games, being shut out in three of those. The Yankees are currently in second place in the American League's Eastern Division.
