In 1995, star pitcher Hideo Nomo attempted to do what no Japanese player had done since 1965 - join Major League Baseball. Nomo and his agent hatched a plan to overcome the legal and cultural barriers that stood in his way, risking Nomo's career and reputation in Japan. The Loophole reveals how they pulled it off, launched "Nomo-mania," and transformed both American and Japanese baseball forever.
